This Electric Sitar has 7 Main Strings, 13 Sympathetic strings and a standard 1/4 inch jack slot. It has a volume & tone controls in the front. It produces great electric sitar sound for any fusion band. The sympathetic strings are tuned with traditional sitar pegs whereas main strings are tuned with guitar style geared tuning pegs for ease of tuning. It sounds almost like a traditional acoustic sitar. In fact it can be played without the amp as well. A piezo pickup has been used below the soundborard

To sum up, It is value for what it is. Seller is very honest and coms are very good ( we had a bill come for customs and seller sorted it promptly) Soft case great, hard case bit cardboard but effective , string ropey , book ok , mizrabs fine, cable supplied useless.
For the money it costs it is a very fair buy and if you want to learn sitar its all you need.
Whilst potentially this should be no Major issue try going online and finding a way to tune this Sitar correctly and you will see how much aggravation that will cause as these Asian instruments are tuned very differently to most. The book that came with the item was also grubby and soiled but useable for what it was worth in the long run which was not much.
I gave the seller four stars as they were most understanding and helpful with these issues and listened to my hopefully constructive comments. Whilst at the same time doing their best to achieve an amicable outcome that worked for the both of us.
This was achieved but took a little time. However I have full respect for the seller as a caring business man who strived hard on my behalf. I would not hesitate to buy again from here, hopefully the same issues will not happen.
I got the sitar 1 month later, and the package does not include all the items as promised, it misses the Amp Cable, the Sitar Book and padded gig bag . I will evaluate the sound with a professional but I am even afraid that this is what it is supposed to be. If not, I would like to return the product and have the money back.

Thank you for giving my brother a wonderful birthday!
The accessories were all included, but all likewise of mediocre quality. The "padded gig bag" was polyester or very cheap nylon with a flimsy crinkly lining -- certainly not worth $30, much less the $60 claimed. The instruction book (see my separate review) was totally worthless.
Maybe I just got a totally different instrument than buyers who rated this higher (I note that BuyRaagini was out of these for a couple of months this summer, and just got them back in stock in time for my order -- new supplier perhaps?). Or maybe the other reviewers were just not expecting a quality instrument. Either way, this is going back for a refund.
