Made in the 1970s Ravi Shankar style. Doesn't look too shabby and has obviously been played a lot. Buy it Now price $400.

Obviously rough cut in comparison to the Hiren Roy / Hemen stuff yet it has a most attractive quality to it. It that were here for $200, I'd probably pick it up. First thing I'd do with it is rewind the chikari strings. They both sit way too far outboard from the neck. In very little time, That string tension will bend the peg shafts permanently. With that, turning those pegs will widen the peg holes. As a beater or a sidewalk siren, this one has lots of draw ! ! !
