Orfeus Violin Bass


Last month we looked at an Art Deco finished Orfeus Hebros Bass and now I'd like to present for your viewing pleasure the Bulgarian take on the much imitated violin bass in the shape of this other Orfeus Bass.

Personally I am not usually a particular fan of violin-shaped guitar and basses, but this one I do find more appealing (aesthetically at least, I can't comment on what it might actually sound like). I like the pronounced lower bout, it lends the design an almost sci-fi element. No attempt to replicate a scroll-style headstock has been made, possibly just a stock neck was used, so we have a 4-in-a-line headstock style which further dilutes the violin aspect.
