Defil Muza

This strange thing is probably Defil Muza, seemingly made in Poland in the 60's. The guitar looks like it's a lapsteel, but it's not. Not sure if this is a serial production instrument or modified Defil Muza or even a handmade. The pickups' configuration is probably non-original, the humbucker might have been a later addition. Weird number 4 that looks almost-stock is something that reqires investigation.

Les-Paulish cutout certainly doesn't help with high-fret access. The fretboard marking and coloring is either taken from lapsteel or inspired by one.
