Naeem Sitarmaker Concert Sitar
Kohinoor style decoration teak
Shankar style setup ~ all inlaid
Been working on these for awhile, I had

put his own style and design on it. Adding a lot of
carved bone work, smaller top gourd hole for better
resonance and extensive inlays with very old teak
7 main strings and 13 sympathetics featuring a 3/4 open jawari in the
style of Pandit Ravi Shankar. All natural materials
for nuts/bridges. Nuts (Meru) are hand carved.
Custom tuning beads. Langot is synthetic. Main pegs also
hardwood, sympathetics are also hardwood and carved.
Natural shellac finish in dark brown with slight red
Aged teak was used, it has a 14 3/8 inch tabli and the construction is all Miraj made.
Gourds are one piece. The top
gourd has the same attention to detail with inlaid
and smaller soundhole for better sound.
Fiberglass cases for sitar and top gourd
are also Miraj made and very nice with a fitted
This sitar has been
