This genuine ???? 'Kanailal & Brother' arrived undamaged a few hours ago from Vijay again!!!!

Quite old but in very good condition. Just need to set both taraf pegs into the actual body properly and, as you can all see, some pegs have been replaced.
Love the yellow box....

Looks like a nicely built sitar, but I don't see anything to suggest it is Kanai Lal & Brother. 

I like the tabli carving. It is nicely done.
The border celluloid decor around the tabli and gullu is cleanly done, which suggests they took care in its construction. 
On lesser sitars that detail is often very sloppy. 

The large side pegs on the headstock look a lot like the rose pegs on my Naskar.  (See photo below)
But the rest of the sitar doesn't look very Naskar.
Looks to be one of your nicer ones, but I don't know who made it. 

Interesting sitar, but not Kanai Lal & Bros, IMHO

Looks really nice Nick - are you just hoarding all of these beautiful instruments in your house?? 😃 Or do you sell them on?

I most certainly sell them on. What's the point of 'rescuing' them to have them sit in a box in my home.
Seen anything you fancy then?
Where are you, if I may...?

OH Not far then. I live in the northwest of England. I live near Burnley in a town called Nelson.
Am on facebook though.
