Defil Orlik electric bass, made in Poland

One more Defil - a bass for the change. It's called Orlik 2 (means kind of little eagle ;-) again: no idea what Orlik 1 looked like).
Manufacturer: Defil that stands for: Dolnoslaska Fabryka Instrumentow Lutniczych (Lower Silesian Factory of Luthiery) in Lubin (a city in western part of Poland). Defil since 1896 (as a piano production factory then), presently not in as good economic shape as before though.
Produced in 80-s. Specs:
Body: have no idea either - most probably some sort of spruce (top) and maple (back & sides) plywood.
Neck: maple.
Electronics & hardware: own factory products.
