Get back to the psychadelic sound of the 1960s with Danelectro's acoustic-electric Baby Sitar. It features a unique round body with a "thermometer" headstock shape and its lipstick pickup allows you to plug in and pump that authentic groovy tone though a guitar amp.
The Baby Sitar is compact and almost identical to the original version from the late '60s with the same body shape and headstock. Instead of symapthetic strings however, it features a "buzz" bridge made by Gotah that creates buzzing, sitar-like sounds. Case sold separately.

Comments about Danelectro Baby Sitar:
Overall good quality and playable, except the buzz bridge is not currently adjustable for intonation. The buzz bridge does work and gives a convincing electric sitar sound but the intonation is badly out because the bridge is just haphazardly screwed into the body. However, I plan to solve that problem by modifying the buzz bridge setup to be adjustable for intonation so all fret positions sound true. If you can somehow make this customization also, then I recommend the instrument because it does make the appropriate electric sitar sound.
