Hey all,

There is a sweet looking older Hemen for sale on Ebay.
It is $950, which is a pretty good deal.
Looks like a lovely tabli, pegs, decor, etc.

Looks interesting. The very short feet on the bridge lead me to think the neck has moved forward quite a bit and the bridge was shortened to fix that.

Also why is a taraf pushed right through the neck about half way??
There's a 'Hemen' just like this awaiting my attention in Varanasi.
MMMM?!!?!?

I think that is just the edge of the guitar stand coming around the neck at the half way point and not the peg pushing through. Also if you look at the side pic of the bridge it seems like the bridge has a fairly large shim on the foot but not really too low over all for an old instrument,just means it has had lots of jewari and the bridge has been raised or the foot may have broken off and been repaired. Could be a real nice sitar looks nice to me but you really can not tell much about the sound from a picture.
