This instrument was in many pieces when we received it. The tabli was separated from the gullu, and both the gullu and tabli were separated from the gourd, which itself was in dozens of pieces.

All of the nubs had sheared off the langot. You can see the pins that were added over time as the nubs sheared off.

The peg box end of the instrument had been butchered, and the scale length shortened from 40 inches to 37.5 inches.
