archive page: Unfortunately I've had to discontinue
carrying instruments from Naeem Sitarmaker. Left
here for your viewing, if you see a design you like
it's easily made by one of our newer makers, just
let me know!

design which has been done by a few makers. Naeem
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 customized polished hardwood, sympathetics are
also hardwood and carved. Natural shellac finish in
dark brown with slight red undertones.
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

This sitar has been air shipped (as are all
of our instruments) to preserve its quality. Styles
of each will vary slightly.
