(Click above for photo).

Here is an idea I am coming up for a sitar-guitar. .

The resonator be the same as the guitar, but the neck, the frets, and the bridge be exactly the same as the sitar. The tuning pegs and the chikari posts should be the same as the guitar (i.e. machine pegs and stronger post). This way, the sitar's sound and technique wouldn't be compromised, yet it wouldn't be difficult mainting this, as there is no gourd to cause problems. The photo above is me using MS Paint to show a perspective diagram.

Here is a clip of me playing meends on a guitar with the perspective idea of a guitar-sitar. This is Raga Madhyamad Sarang.

The image is just me w/ MS paint cutting and pasting.

I do plan to have four main strings, 3 chikaris, and thirteen tarabs (sympathetic strings).

That's what I was thinking.  On the image I had seen 6 strings and got a little confused.  Heard your piece few times.  Sounds brilliant Bhakta da.

Do you mean the tumba (the gourd)?

The tumba will resemble the behind of an oud or Tukish saaz.

The sound of the hybrid will have a sitar bridge, so there will be buzz but not much. (of course, if you are skilled w/ jawari sanding, then you can change it to whatever you want).
