A few months back (or maybe a year or two) there was a link here to a series of videos showing a young man building a stringed instrument similar to a sitar or bouzouki but it had a segmented, gourd shaped back. I can't remember the name or the ethnicity of the thing and I think my head is starting to cramp up. Can somebody help a brother out?

Thanx,

Jim

Maybe an oud?

That was it Lee. I still had to get creative with the search but I found it.
Thanx,
Jim
