Re: EKO Bass guitar

New Eko owner;

Depending on the condition of the wood, front and back, would depend on how much you would want to spend to refurbish the bass. I used to own a 1964 Eko violin bass, and it was the most beautiful maple wood that was in perfect condition. The main problem with old Eko's is their problem of having their necks twist. It isn't always a fixable problem, but sometimes they still play alright. If not, and you can't straiten the neck, then I would not put a lot of money into refurbishing it. Good luck.

Aloha Barry,
I own an EKO for some years now and the only thing I can say is; it works. It's not a really comfertable bass, it's a workout! :)
Yhey are not really worth much (mine I bought for say $140 while it cost $400 ten years earlier) but for me it's the nicest acoustic fretless I can find ;)

Hello,
I recently bought a Eko Bass Model 995 in excellent shape. What is it worth? I paid $50:00 for it at an estate sale. Is it worth more or did I get ripped? Any help would be appreciated
