Seller says....

This is an older musical instrument I know nothing about but found as a estate with many other indian collectible. It has wonderful Ivory colored inlay as can be seen in the pictures. It has damage as I have tried to show in pictures. INDIAN SITAR with a book which is copyright 1967. Use for parts, repair it or just display it as the folks from the estate did. very large instrument that measures 48" long - guessing it may be a base sitar?? The sound board is 12" wide and the gourd approx 13" wide. The gourd does not have any cracks in it. There is something rolling around on the inside of the gourd - seeds?? Please ask question or request more pictures if needed.

Yup, total piece of crap.
It is funny how they fail to mention that the headstock is completely smashed.
And the Gullu is cracked.
Oh but the gourd has no cracks. :roll: :roll:
That sitar needs hundreds of dollars of work and it is worth very very little.
This sitar needs to see the inside of a trash bin.

I think what a lot of people miss is that tourist garbage has been floating around for better than 40 years once the Beatles inspired sitar mania emerged....
