A point regarding a standard bridge replacement on a RR sitar. Good chance the original bridge will be a bit offset to handle the 'left field' placement of the strings that RR is famous for. You may need to either get a main bridge a little wider than usual or perhaps fit some kind of dogleg strip at the leg base where it meets the two bone nubbies sticking up out of the tabli, assuming that those are there. Not a critical issue unless the #7 chikari string slot on the main bridge is really close to the edge. That string may end up rolling off the side of the bridge as a result of the angle going to that strings chikari post. If the #7 chikari post looks like a phone pole after a storm, you may have this situation to contend with. Have fun with the project !
