It was obviously made by a very competent craftsman but it is not a Kanai Lal. Definitely not.

You did ask....

Sorry Nick.

Having spent a number of hours working on it, I agree.

Hmmmmm. Compare the pen work and the carving nearest the strike plate.

Can't say I disagree with your taste!

Hey Nick! They're Booker's, not Baker's, but Baker's is a favorite too. Two of the boxes stacked and glued together are the perfect height and width to put under the head stock for string changes and repairs.

You're right, of course, it was Booker's...only bought a bottle once to celebrate a promotion...maybe I'll tell my wife I need to buy another to make the block for sitar maintenance!
