    It's an Eko BX-7. Italian-made, from the early '80s.

    A cursory Google search suggests that if you still have European connections it might not be too hard to find one in the next few months. Good luck!

    Aha! I have one of these - it is an unlined fretless one (#0872) and very nice it is too :). It is quite heavily customised now - gold knobs, bypass cap and push-pull Series/Parallel on volume pot, OBL P-bass pickup and Vintage Fender J-pickup, Schaller tuners, deeper cut on tone controls, etc. The woods used for the thru-neck are very high quality - mahogany up the middle and between the wings, maple either side and really close-grained rosewood for the fingerboard. Besides looking great, somebody thought long and hard about the shape as the balance on the strap or on your knee without a strap is perfect - no need to hold the neck up or grip too tightly with your elbow.
    Right now I am plucking up the courage to re-dress the fingerboard which after 25 years of non-flat strings (I got mine second-hand in 1989) has a few grooves starting to appear. I'll post a pic or two later...
