Orfeus Precision-type electric bass, made in Bulgaria

This bass was spotted on ebay for minimum $99 bid. With this model Bulgarian manufacturer Orfeus probably wanted outbid Fender Precision Bass. The body build with the number of wooden layers from spruce, ebony, and oak. The pickup design also seems to be some original creation - a single-coil with a rail magnet. Pay attention to the thumbrest location - it doesn't seem to be original, but it's a cool idea for a P bass!
Early 80's. Made in Bulgaria.

Studio 1525 (the ebay seller)
