Weird No-Name Red Electric

I really don't know what to make of this un-badged guitar which is for sale on eBay right now. The auction finishes very soon if you're seriously interested in a very weird-looking guitar.

How would you even describe that shape? To my eyes it looks a bit like an Ovation Breadwinner crossed with an Eko Rokes. My guess would be that it dates back to the 1960s, but if the Breadwinner was an inspiration to the designer then that would date it to the mid 1970s, which I guess is possible.

From the seller's description it's very doubtful that this one is a good player, but hey, it would look great in your band's video!

If anyone has any info about this guitar and what it may be, then please do tell! My guess is that it's of Eastern European or Russian origin... possibly Italian, but that's a long-shot.
