Orfeus Thinline electric guitar currently being offered for sale on eBay, with bidding currently at $58 at the time of writing this blog post.
We've looked at similar Orfeus guitars before on Guitarz, but judging by the photos on the eBay listing this example has a glosssy black finish and what appears to be a lacquered fingerboard - which wouldn't be to everyone's tastes but that never stopped Rickenbacker! The radius of the fingerboard looks to be similar to that of my Jolana Disco (another Communist-era East-European guitar) and is something that takes a bit of getting used to. If you'd like any more info, last year Guitarz reader Martin Cater kindly supplied a review of his own similar Orfeus Thinline.
