Re: EKO guitars

Just found this site. Can't give you much on your guitar, but I have an EKO 6 string I bought in 1973. It's jet black, dreadnought shape and full with a very full sound, weghs a ton too!Never seen one since, anyone have any ideas on it? it looks very 'high end' in the EKO range. Has lots of design in gold pearl effect on head stock, pearl fret markers and double scratchplates.

Re: EKO guitars

i aiso have an Eko that matches your description black double scratchplates ,gold hardware white bindings and M.O.P. fret markers.i paid £120 for it in 1973 and it still plays beautifully !!.Eko was an Italian made guitar the more common acoustic was the Ranger which I believe was made in various guises and finishes.as far as I am aware it started with a Series 1 and went up to a Series 6.I also own a Ranger 6 which I bought at an autojumble at Newark recently.This one is blonde with a mahogony ? upside down bridge .The bridge "bone" is fully adjustable enabling the action to be adjusted with great accuracy and thus makes the guitar very "playable" I think they are one of the best medium priced guitars ever produced,much better than any Fender,of an equivalent price.

Re: EKO guitars

i recently bought a eko 12 string electric acoustic. model no. j.56/1. my guitar seems to have curly maple not mahoughny on the backside. this guitar need some work done to it. right where the bridge is glued on the face, it is lifting. this lifting is warping the face. any suggestions on how to repair this. i don't mind spending a few dollars because i only paid 100.00 dollars for it.

The EKO J56

I bought an Eko J56 12 string acoustic made in 1965 or 66 for £8-.It was covered in greasy soot and dust,broken strings etc. but with a clean and new strings it came up an instant player with the best action Ive ever played and I do have a Gibson L1. these Eko's are becoming a cult instrument in the UK and if anyone's got one hang on to it!! The volume and tone is beyond belief and with a pick up you could really go to town. Yes they weigh a ton but is this bad?? They are ideal buskers and pretty much bomb proof so if you want to do a Woody Guthrie take you Eko, If I lost mine or it was damaged I'd not be pleased so I'm going to get another one as insurance. Keep playing the Delta blues you young fellers.I'm 73 and time is limited. Pick up the torch,AND an EKO! The Doctor

EKO J56 12 string acoustic guitar

I bought this beautiful piece of art a while back at a garage sale and i am having a hard time trying to find out what year it is and how much it is worth???? I paid a great price of only $15.00 for it and all it needed was one string to complete it. Can you please send me an email explaining to me what you know the guitar is worth and the year of it?? It has a serial number on a plate on the back. Please help me out here!
