Temel Sehit oud rebuild project - update and questions


A diamond in the rough project...

Found this online for way dirt cheap (less than my phone bill) with hard case, no less. Before i pulled the trigger i did some research and couldnt find a whole lot, but he has been mentioned here a few times and one of his ouds was recently for sale here. If anyone can provide a broader context , I'd love to know more about the maker.



It needs a little love:

1) pickguard needs to be glued back down;

2)Chip in fingerboard built up/filled in;

3) one of the intermediary ribs has a slight split in the wood itself, but its not long and I can find no other splits in the body. Debating to fill or just monitor.

I love my 7 course Sabsaby floating bridge oud, which after a year a is really growing into its own unique sound, but this will be a cool piece and it will be good to have a traditional Turkish voice on hand (my own playing is going more and more that way anyway).

Process done for the moment.
Pickguard split into shards during re-attachment so I'm going with the contact paper clear sheet for now. Put a little hide glue on the back split.

Restrung, figured out that the pegs I think are Wittner pegs or equivalent; you have the set screw that adjust the tension so they actually hold! Really nice and makes me think this is a higher end piece.

Action is way higher than I'd like and higher than a Turkish oud should be. This is at 5 mm. Not sure how to fix this ; been looking at the recent oud bending thread but a little hesitant to try that myself.

Strung it with a LaBella Turkish set; not a fan of the tension balance on this set at all. I have an Aquila set i ordered as back up and may use that. if i can get the action repaired i may invest in a custom set of Pyramids.

would love some feedback and thoughts on this folks, thanks!
