Sekova 60's guitar - any info at all?

Posted by Mr. Mead on Tue, 10/16/01 - 10:59:29.

I am researching the Sekova line of guitars, specifically ones made in the late 60's early 70's. So far I have only found mention of a few mandolins, a banjo, and a few "black beauty" Les Paul copies (which had very good reviews from their owners). Please help me out with any information you have on non-Les Paul Sekova solid body electrics, or the brand name history in general. Thanks Very Much!

sekova violin bass

Hi.

The Sekova guitars were manufactured with components Guyatone And Teisco with very special Pickups, 2.7 k Ohm.
mastil and about 3.7 to 5 k Ohm bridge, pickups highly valued but extremely delicate and very special sound when connected to desface a sound that can not get the best Fender or Gibson is achieved.
In the case of solid guitars they are not wood rechapada but despite what they think some or opinions to some scholars, this veneer is very special and not the veneering common that we know today is very low quality if not the other, this veneering it is made with thin sheets of wood wood. This manufacturing is made to eliminate the problem of bodies and prevent woodworking on drying time. These guitars for which Woods really understands a good and intelligent way of making as good as the massive guitars that obrecen less security.
Pots used are usually mini pots 500k A and B.
The tremolos and bridges are equal to those of any guitar made of his time.
These guitars were manufactured and released to the market with different brands but basically out of the same factory with diferenres names depending on the dealer.
You can have a Teisco or identical Sekova that maybe what the difference is more than a simple screw on the kicker.
I hope this is useful.

Sekova bass

Just bought a vintage 1960s Sekova solid body offset double cutaway 2 pick up bass guitar in a cherry red finish. In researching this, I have been unable to find any similar pix nor descriptions of same. Only thing missing is one of the volume control knobs which are either steel or aluminum. Obviously, it needs some work. Not a Mosrite nor a Gibson copy, unsure what the heck they were trying to produce with this particular model. Can anyone help out on ID'ing this puppy? Thx so much.

sekova

I just bought a Sekova f-1010 for $50. The lady I bought it from said she bought it new in 1968. It dose not have a serial number but it does have the number 18 stamped on the inside. I was wondering if this was the production number.

Hola.

Las guitarras Sekova se fabricaron con componentes Guyatone Y Teisco con unos Pickups muy especiales, 2,7 k Ohm.
mastil y más o menos 3,7 a 5 k Ohm puente, pickups muy valorados pero extremadamente delicados y con un sonido muy especial que si se conectan en desface se consigue un sonido que no puede conseguir las mejores Fender o Gibson.
En el caso de guitarras macizas no son de madera rechapada pero pese a lo que piensen algunos u opiniones algunos entendidos, este rechapado es muy especial y no es el rechapado comun que conocemos hoy que es de muy baja calidad si no al contrario, este rechapado está hecho con finas láminas de madera madera. Esta forma de fabricación se hizo para eliminar el problema de los cuerpos y evitar el trabajo de la madera al secarse con el tiempo. Estas guitarras para el que entiende de verdad de maderas una buena e inteligente forma de fabricación tan buenas como las guitarras macizas que obrecen menos garantías.
Los potes utilizados son mini potes normalmente de 500k A y B.
Los tremolos y puentes son iguales a los de cualquier guitarra fabricada de su época.
Estas guitarras fueron fabricadas y lanzadas al mercado con diferentes marcas pero en el fondo salían de la misma fábrica con diferenres nombres dependiendo del distribuidor.
Puedes tener una Teisco o una Sekova identicas que a lo mejor lo que las diferencia es un simple tornillo de más en el golpeador.
Espero que esto te sea de utilidad.

Hi
I have a Sekova acoustic that I purchased in Pittsburgh in the '80's...i don't know the model. It was left in an attic through very hot summers and freezing winters and the neck pulled away from the body. :-(
I know that guitarists will cringe, but I glued it back on with crazy glue. That was about 15 years ago. I still have it and it stills plays well and sounds beautiful-and believe it or not I stuck an Earvana nut on it and the intonation problems were solved.
Miracle Guitar! :-)

SEKOVA GUITAR - VALUE? [1960's]

I have a sekova 2-tone guitar [1960'sand am trying to determine the value before selling to be sure that I get the accurate fee.

Sekova F1010 6-string

I purchased this guitar in 1976 for $75.00. I was told it was a low-grade Martin. It is in excellent condition - the case is a bit worn. The sound is wonderful. Any information on this guitar would be appreciated.

Re: Sekova 60's guitar - any info at all?

I own a black Sekova Les Paul copy. I bought it around 1975. It is a beautiful guitar with mother of pearl inlay, gold tuners and pickups. It actually has a great action but does not measure up to a quality guitar in tone. Mine has a hum problem that I will need to fix but as I rarely play it, I haven't gotten around to it.

Re: Sekova 60's guitar - any info at all?

Hello Friends! Sekova is like Cimar, Morris, Columbus, Greco, Univox, Mann, CSI, Kasuga... etc..etc...etc...
All marks from the same Japanese Factory, at now called IBANEZ (and moved to USA).
There`s interesting history about them, but my horrible english is not enough for a lot... you know... me tarzan, you Jane... no much more :-)

I have a wooden acoustic Sekova n5k with a steel reinforced neck that sounds great. Unfortunately I dont have the time to play it anymore so if anybody wants it give me a fair offer and its yours. thanks

Sekova acoustic guitar

Do you still have that acoustic guitar? My brother has an old Sekova six-string (think it's a 1010) from the early 70's that sounds absolutely fantastic. If the offer still stands, I might buy it from you. (I live in Augusta, Georgia.)

sekova

hey there...I find myself in your shoes; I bought a a used Sekova jazz copy bass, back in 1978. it was old THEN!...fast forward to February 2014;...I was reunited with it a few days ago! I have been a gigging musician for a few decades, and that bass was the one that got me started, helping form my style (good habits and bad). I never knew much about it, except that to me, it sounded pretty good at the time. All I really know now, is that they were a low-end Japanese company, that made copies of EVERYTHING... Mine however is the ONLY Sekova, of ANY kind that I have EVER seen...I hope more info becomes available.....for my part, I WILL refurbish it, and take it on stage soon!

Re: Sekova 60's guitar - any info at all?

Hi,

Just to let you know that I just bought one. 4 pickups,
wheel-knobed, side mounted pots, slide-switches. The body has horns that curl way around, and it looks a little like some 'Burns' guitars I've seen, but with a fender look-a-like head-stock. The neck is bolt-on. I, too, am curious and will let you know if I can learn something.

Sekova guitars

I have a Sekova dreadknot guitar I have had since 1976. I have not been able to find much information about the Sekova line at all and what I have found has been about the electric guitars so I too would love to hear about this line.

Re: Sekova 60's guitar - any info at all?

I have a Sekova guitar for sale. I bought it from a friend who played in the 70's. My son took a few lessons, and decided he didn't want to play anymore. If anyone is interested in the details, please send me an e-mail and I can send pics.

Thanks!

Re: Sekova 60's guitar - any info at all?

I have a 60's(?) Sekova electric that I bought at a flea market not long ago. The body shape is similar to a Fender Duo-Sonic, with a silver pick guard sort of shaped like the state of Texas. It's red, with a red finished neck and one pickup. I looked all over for a serial number, and couldn't find anything, unless maybe it's tucked away inside somewhere.
I bought it because I liked it, but mainly I bought it because it had a complete and working Tremar - arm and set screw and everything(!!) I had originally thought I would take it off and use it to replace the stripped tremolo on my Hagstrom III, but I've decided to let it stay where it is for now, because I like the Sekova so much.
So I don't know how much this helps your research, but they made them in red, they made Fender copies, and they used Hagstrom-style tremolos.

blonde "tele" style Sekova

Do u still have the Sekova tele? I bought a blonde Sekova tele about a year ago. Have not seen anything like this one anywhere. Looks like a Fender. Top loader, hot pickups, very fast maple neck... the guy I bought it from (not original owner) said it was an early 70's model. Send a pic and let's see if they are similar.

Re: Sekova 60's guitar - any info at all?

I got a Sekova bass when I joined my first band in 1971.
The price of that guitar was $175.00 I was 15 years old. It was avery authentic looking copy of a Gibson EB3 with a cherry finish. I still have that bass and will hang on to it because it was my first guitar. It does need a new bass pickup,the treble pickup is still working.
