Update, this instrument went missing from an open stage venue storage area in Baku. Word is being spread via SM sources & personal contacts

It was bought NOS in Istanbul Turkey and hand-carried on a flight to Baku Azerbaijan by an old friend. My wife bought it second-hand from her friend after her life-mate passed away. She gifted it to me for Christmas.

I had seen it played here, on-loan / open stage, over the years by a few of my local musician mates. From their viewpoint, it's been used many times in studio recording sessions as well, for over a decade the only one of its kind in Baku.
