I have relatives coming from India soon...perfect opportunity to get a new Sitar

Can anyone recommend any good dealers in the Delhi area? Preferrably someone i can get in touch with over the net?
Also, any idea of how much i should be paying them? I dont want to be ripped off...and my relatives there would pay so they wouldn't be jacking up the prices for a tourist or anything..
btw. im looking for a gayaki sitar, preferrably a black shahid parvez style one

Unless one of your relatives is a sitar player - who knows how to pick out a good piece - your chances of getting a good instrument and/or not overpaying - are somewhat better than abysmal. We have a regular parade of folks dragging firewood into the shop that has been convieniently purchased by helpful relatives. I had an Australian customer in earlier this week with a $750.00 instrument that was worth perhaps $45.00.
