I wish I could find a sitar made in China. Chinese instruments are significantly nicer than Indian instruments!

Yeah man, China is not exactly known for putting out "quality" products, although I'm sure some exist. LOL

I'd love to see your collection Nick. Have a picture?

Wow, really great collection Nick. Looks like you've been at it for some time! I'm just getting into it. Love the Kanailal & Brother pics, are those still for sale? Would love to get my hands on a nice one.

Great INDEED. Been collecting & 'rescuing' many, many years now. Have a great friend in Varanasi, called Vijay who's been getting all his friends in Kolkatta to look for oldies & WHAT beauts they've turned up. Peeps needing to sell & have been in some right states but basically good. Some REAL treasures of big makers such as Hiren Roy & Kanailal etc.
It IS for sale so.... Presuming you mean the one at the top of my posts on FB??? Have a look & tell me on there which ones you like &, importantly, your budget & where you are, as I don't want to send out of the UK. Sorry.
Nick

Does not look right to me. I could be wrong but I don't think this a real Naskar. The Tumba is much too big /high. The proportions don't look right. Post a few more pictures.

Interesting. Naskar & Co. said that both tags are not authentic -- inlcluding the other example someone posted her on this thread.

I'm not sure if whoever is responding on Facebook just doesn't know what they're talking about, or if in fact these older tags aren't authentic. [confused]

My guess (hope?) is the former.

The one that you bought, the one for sale by Sitarsencat, and the unusual plastic one below are the only supposed Naskar's badges that I've seen with cursive or lower case lettering.  Other badges (real and probably some fake) posted below.  The current badge (I think) is at the bottom.

Keep in mind these are the folks who denied their shop was rented out as a toilet supply company for many years until Naskars son retired from his day job. I saw it years ago as well as many friends.
Whether that label is on the sitar it was originally put on is another matter but it doesn't look like so many of the fake ones you see now. I doubt there's a big enough interest in old Naskars to warrant manufacture of fake labels. As for their new sitars they have some really great wood stored up and the structures are nice, proper setup and fitting definitely needed though.

OMG

not enough interest to warrant the manufacture of fake labels ?

Anything to make a buck, my dear.  Manufacturing labels in India costs absolutely peanuts !

So all the 'Naskar's' I'VE ever had have all had the plate on the first, some between & that last one, on them. The small black, silver lettering type. They're excellent sitars regardless !?!?!?
Good News ?!!!?

Shouldn't the sitar matter more than the nameplate ?!?!? Don't think I've ever bought a sitar because of its plate. Always played where possible & bought from that.!!!

Agreed Nick! At the end of the day it's all about the construction and how it plays...

Yes Max I would imagine there are a million fake nameplates floating around. I guess apart from buying directly at the shop there's no good way to know.
