The Sitar-Caster

So I wanted an electric guitar sitar, but didn't have a ton of money to buy one, and I didn't want to hack apart a usable guitar. I did however have a lot of wood laying around. So with a little filing and adjustments, I made my own easily removable buzz bridge that costs about $0.50 to make. Its mounted by some extra long screws through the pickguard holes that were already there. There was a lot of saddle adjustments to get each string to ring just right with harmonics, and the action isn't super low or anything, but this mod is easily removable.
Here you are, the Sitar-Caster. (I really should mass market these and make some money.)

Here's how it sounds
