The place where the neck meets the body looks a bit small for a Fender, at least to me.  I was thinking they looked maybe like a Bridge Instruments Aquila (for the 4 string) and Lyra (for the 5 string).

Good eye, DanielB:  Bridge:

 

"International star rock electric violin duo FUSE debuted their world exclusive, million-pound Swarovski-encrusted violins at an exclusive photocall held at Harrods.

Following in the footsteps of international superstars Madonna, Michael Jackson and Kylie Minogue, FUSE’s Linzi Stoppard and Ben Lee joined forces with Swarovski to embellish each of their bespoke Bridge instruments with an incredible 50,000 crystals each, every one hand-applied, creating the world’s most expensive electric violins.Insured for one million pounds each, these are, however, no museum pieces and – whilst there was security in attendance! "

Great link and video.

Don't get hung up on the violin type though. I have played on dozens of electric violin types and can assure you that what you are hearing has to do with the effects and not the violin.

Now the trick is.......making a guitar sound like violin! ;-)  

Watching all these videos makes me want to break out all my "stomp boxes" for my guitar, out of storage!  .....ya know, just to see how they sound with my violin! LOL
