Eko electric guitars

Can anybody please give me some info on Eko electric guitars. I repair and make guitars as a hobby and I have been asked to restore an old Eko 6 string electric semi which is in dire condition. What I need to know before I make a start is will I be devaluing the guitar in any way by restoring it. I usually get involved with Fender / Gibson stuff so know nothing about the values of old Ekos. The guitar in question is from about 1963, brownish sunburst with two single coil (I think) pickups. The tone and volume pots are all broken and they look like they're going to be a pig to get at. I haven't got the guitar here yet it is coming over in about 4 days time. There is no name (except for Eko) on the guitar so I don't even know what model it is. Any advice or info would be very much appreciated

Re: Eko electric guitars

I own an EKO Lancer Stereo that is part of the Lancer models (Lancer VI and Lancer XII)put out by EKO. Generally, these were two pickup solid electrics with tone and volume controls and two rocker switches, one per guitar horn. They had a tailpiece that looks a bit like the old Bigsby types. The stereo has two pickups that could be subdivided with separate tone and volume per half pickup. Yep, 4 tone and 4 volume controls, one rocker switch and two, three position rocker switches. Beyond that I can't help you. But, I just discovered that EKO is back making guitars, so you may be able to get this info at their website. Try searchig for EKO. Regards,Ed

Framus Starbass weirdo

I have a Framus Starbass model 5/150 serial # 2149 that I need some info on. It's a red to black burst 2 p/u,"Starbass" on the saddle all same as the Wyman bass. The only thing different is a springed trigger thing between and below the p/u's that bounces the signal betweeen the p/u's for a sorta tremolo effect. Anyone seen or heard of this? The only one I've seen is mine. I found it at a Goodwill store in FL for $35. Feel free to e-mail me @ lux4prez@aaahawk.com

Re: Framus Starbass weirdo

: I have a Framus Starbass also.I believe what you have is a added feature called the thumb tremelo.I have a Cherry Red type with curly maple back.Bought it in 1966 for 400.00 w/case.Liked it for the easy use of slim neck and fretboard,also the 2p/u's sound and light weight.Not to sure but I think they only made that (thumb trem)in that year.

Re: Framus Starbass weirdo

I just sent a picture to this site. It's a little late for this discussion, but hopefully it will get poste in this thread. Mine, as Eddie has mentioned , is very curly maple and highly figured. Thanks Eddie for your input. Since there is no good source of info on Framus products I can only rely on sources such as this. All kudos where necessary.: : : I have a Framus Starbass also.I believe what you have is a added feature called the thumb tremelo.I have a Cherry Red type w/o the Trem added curly maple back.Bought it in 1966 for 400.00 w/case.Liked it for the easy use of slim neck and fretboard,also the 2p/u's sound and light weight .Not to sure but I think they only made that (thumb trem)in that year only.

Framus 12 String - Age and Value Needed

I have an old Framus 12 string acoustic guitar. It looks almost identical to a six string model they called The Texan. I've found pictures on the internet very similar to mine, but they all have decorative metal fittings on the bridge (which mine does not have). Can anyone help me on age and approximate value? Did they make a 12 string version of The Texan? Model 5/296, Serial Number 2031

Re: Framus 12 String - Age and Value Needed

I own the same model since the mid 60's . sn is 13946, without any indication of a manufacturing date. I've bought it in Switzerland new for, if i remember well, about 400 CHF., quite expensive for me back then ..
She sounds still very good at the age of 35 ..

Framus acoustic

I've just bought a Framus 6-string acoustic. It's model number is 7322 - it looks like a beginner's instrument, 1/2 size, 18 frets. It's really interesting, though, and sounds great. The back of the guitar is arched, like a violin, and I haven't seen that before. The strings are colour- co-ordinated!! I'd love to know anything at all about its origin.
Thanks, Damian Dowling

Re: Framus acoustic

: Hey. I also have a Framus acoustic 6 string guitar. it was my grand fathers when he was a kid in the early 50's! (old! jk lol) it too has an slightly arched back too. the only other guitar I know of that has an arcked back is Ovation. as for the color-co-ordinated strings I don't know much about that. (I'm sure it's been re-strung) My Framus is not half sized though. (it's standard 22 frets) I don't know the modle number. you said you wanted to know it's orgin so I searched up this web site for you http://www.framus.com/history.htm The only other thing I can tell you is that they are made in Germeny and to never get rid of it because they are worth some money (depending on the modle you have) I hope this has helped you. thanks- Ben

Re: Framus acoustic

Hi. I have one from about 1972 (give or take a year or two). It sounds like the one that you have. It's at my boyfriend's house right now as I was having it re-strung. I emailed him and asked that send me the model number. I have some comments about that particular guitar if it's the same one you have but I will wait until I know for sure. You can email me at the address above if you'd like and I will let you know what I find out. Thanks, Teri

Eko rangemaster

I have recently aquired an EKO Rangemaster 6 string solid electric. 2 gold pickups, gold glittery top, huge frets. All controls on top half of guitar, 4 push buttons to control pickup labelled: - 1+2, bass, treble, off. plus two rotary controls mounted perpendicular to the top of the guitar labelled volume and tone. It has a tremolo covered by a plate (similar to a telecaster ash tray but smaller)this plate has the word Rangemaster on it and on the back of the head stock it says 'made in Italy'. The back of the guitar is gloss black. The neck is humungously thick and the guitar is extremely light. Oh and by the way, it plays loke sh** but looks dead cool. Who knows anything about it.

Re: Eko rangemaster

I know this guitar (I have one)
It's called a Ekomaster.
(not Rangemaster)
Made in Italy in 1959-1963
