GOOD NEWS!!!!!
Sitar arrived back from the US today, fri 11th. Two points of interest first.

NO more damage than was decribed & shown in the 2 pics. I was worried it might get more cracked.
Secondly, he sent it for 'only' $95. I couldn't believe it. I wonder if I could send it to the US for that?? AND it included insurance.

It had no covering over the fibre box but had security tape all over it. I must upload a pic to show you this. Only the mizrabs weren't in the box. the strings, DVD, taraf tuner were all still in the box too.
It won't take me long to reglue the crack & we'll up & running by monday.

I have offered to send something at cost price when I go back to India, he liked that idea so he's cooled off a bit now. I asked if he wanted a full refund now or wants to leave it until I go back & send him another. I would understand if it was FULL refund & recontact later, I said.
I wish I had a similar sitar in my house that I could send him but the ones I have to sell are all GP Mundas.
Specially securely wrapped of course. :wink:
An interesting point he made on several ocassions was this box was the OVERLAPPING lid type as opposed to the 'flush fitting' ones I sometimes get. THIS could well have contributed to the damage.

I've never had good luck with that type of case either.

Yes I think it's a very valid point as the box can flex a little even with the locks on.

Another thing that's POing me a bit lately is the amount of broken locks appearing when I send my boxes out. I never lock them so there's no reason for them to be broken off.
Usual retarded crap from Indian Customs!!!! :roll:

Forgot to mention that my name on Ebay is NOT trippy anything but nicksitar0 so that thought about buyers wondering wouldn't matter.

Final note about that lovely KP sitar that got damaged on its way to the US.
Through a sometime fellow forumite, Stephen from Glasgow, I sold the sitar to his friend who was coming down here for the Birmingham Mela.
He stayed for 3 hours!! With his poor wife!?!?!?
It was a choice between that one & 2 Gandha Panchams, the black & the Mahogany Red. He was pulled between the one he eventually got & the black one.
I included a soft gig bag, he'd already brought a box with him, coils of strings, a learner DVD & a wooden taraf tuner.

He was ripped off in Delhi when he paid about
