Lemon Yellow Orfeus Guitar from Bulgaria
This very crude-looking Bulgarian-made Orfeus from the 1970s is a delight to behold. It looks for all the world as if it could have been cut out from cardboard by someone who wanted something roughly between a Jazzmaster and a Stratocaster in shape. In common with other Orfeus guitars it has a 5-pin DIN output, and Orfeus' own very peculiar pickups which were single coils wound around a trio of square magnets and held in place with bands.

Alas, I can tell you nothing more about this particular instrument; it's not even listed on Cheesy Guitars' Orfeus page.

Any further info would be gratefully received.
