Defil Calypso
Defil semihollow jazz line:
Defil Jazz - no pickups
Defil Calypso - 1 pickup
Defil Cha Cha - 2 pickups
Defil Careoca - 3 pickups
Defil Semihollow bass - 2 pickups

Serial number - 2710

Two-bolt neck joint

As you can see DéFIL used the same body for different models of guitars. This Calypso has a bolt-on neck (à la Musima : two bolts, hidden by the numbered neckplate). Defil Careoca had bolt-on and set necks versions, so Calypso was probably also made with set neck. I presume that the ones the set neck are the older (and better) ones.
