Used Rikhi Ram Sitar in excellent condition.
This is a very nice professional-grade sitar - the previous owner (a pro player in our area who is moving back to India) purchased it new in 2000. Gayaki style (6-string), single toomba. Both bridges appear to be ebony or rosewood. There is a previously repaired crack in the gourd which is visible, but completely stable. A small piece of binding was repaired near the base of the neck where one would rest their thumb.
As with all sitars made out of a gourd, the interior has flaked and debris can be heard when the sitar is handled. This is not an indication of the craftsmanship whatsoever and is common with older sitars.
A sturdy hardshell fiberglass case is included.
We would prefer to sell this sitar locally to avoid shipping - shipping fragile sitars is risky, and expensive
