In that time it has only been a display piece, so the strings and everything else are original, and there's no wear from use. Features the signs of the zodiac inset along the neck. It needs a little attention before it is playable again, primarily a new lower bridge. I've included a template taken from another morin khuur bridge which I tested on this instrument and seemed a suitable match to my untrained eye.With the template are pieces of the ears, which will considerably ease their reconstruction, if desired. I don't believe it is all of the pieces, so it would be more than merely gluing them back together. A luthier or violin maker should be well equipped to handle any maintenance and repair this instrument may require. Be aware that tuning it requires some skill, because the mechanical fit of the tapered pins do not offer the fine adjustability, force multiplication, and automatic hold of the worm gear tuning knobs common of contemporary stringed instruments. Also, by virtue of its construction, the neck will be loose relative to the body until the strings are tensioned.
Includes the cloth carrying bag and simple blue shawl that came with it. The bag has a handle, cinch top, and tie.
