Guitar Sarod

In the 1960s Ravi Shankar and the Beatles became the point men for introducing Indian ragas into Western musical thinking. Many American musicians' interest in those droning rhythms rose markedly by the 1970s and 80s. One such musician, Carl Schwindeman, commissioned a combination electric guitar and sarod from me. The sarod needed a hollow neck with multiple tuning pegs, a goatskin head, and of course a specialized bridge.
