Information about the production:

Defil Malwa was an electric archtop guitar made in Poland in 80’s. It was one of the most desired guitars in Poland in that time. It was used by many jazz and blues guitarsits, but it has mach wider spectre of sound. “Like many instrument of this vintage Polish company, the Defil Malwa is a strange mix of elegance and crudeness: it has a subtle outline and Framus-like cats-eyes sound holes always look cool (…)”. You can hear and watch some other Defil Malwa here – our model is in very similar condition.
