This Romeo 2 bass is owned by the bass player of indie-pop band The Old-Fashioned Way. It is a classic 1970s example of the cheesy Polish guitar brand Defil, in the style of the Hofner violin (Beatle) bass. But Defil never made slavish copies, and the design of this bass has its own twists on the Hofner shape, with a teardrop sound hole and asymmetric headstock.
This bass is currently for sale for $900 on Etsy.com (December 2009). The tuning pegs have been upgraded to modern silver ones. Comes with soft shell roadrunner case with backpack straps and handle.
