At at 35 seconds into this Pomplamoose video there is an acoustic fretless bass being played that sounds and looks great. Deep bodied but styled like a violin. I've not seen one of these before so any of you folks know what it might be? 
A search on Google for violin style acoustic  bass guitars doesn't seem return anything matching i

    Strange looking thing; a luthier build?

    Thanks, link updated... or and it appears it does have frets, but is then fretless where the fingerboard goes over the body.

    IMHO, the "acoustic" aspect of that instrument is entirely cosmetic. The sound comes entirely from whatever transducer system is installed within.

    I would stick with Leo's planks and some clever EQ processing.
    Be seeing you.
