there is something wrong with you that has nothing to do with that instrument you want to build.

i know there is a company in russia that sells saddles for three saddle tele bridges that make the strings buzz and sound just like a sitar, but i don't know how to get them from the us. i've also heard of people cutting a piece of wood (rosewood, ebony, maple, something hard) to the right size and sanding it down until it fits under the strings just before the hit the saddles, you might try that.

The weapon is Dan Donegans signature pedal, it just has a bunch of distortions...smart move there.
I got some good guitars, yo.
#11
Yea, I've played a tele with one of those bridges on it, it's awesome, sounds like a sitar even when it's not plugged in (duh, but I'm making the point that it is not some electronic mod, it actually changes the string sound)

it was cool

it still has a sitar emulator

and i know it's not precise, but a slide helps ALOT, because sitars (and indian music on a whole) rely on notes that lie between semitones, and you can't reach that with frets, so you "make your own frets" with a slide

Try messing with octave and flanger effects together. You can get something similar.
