Danelectro Sitar Guitar for Belle & Sebastian

In 2000 I converted a Danelectro guitar to a sitar for Stevie from Belle & Sebastian. I made a new bridge in brass and had it chrome plated. It all worked really well. When he picked it up I showed him a sitar riff I copped from George who used it on “Within You, Without You” …”What was that?” asked Stevie…so I showed him note by note. Imagine my surprise when Belle & Sebastian brought out their “Legal Man” single shortly after this with the afore tutored riff stuck right on the front of the track! God Bless You George!
