Yes, I have one and it's a terrible guitar. It's a 12 string acoustic wich someone give me a while ago, but I never play it. First of all I'm not a 12 string guy, second this guitar is TERRIBLE (neck as a tree branch, action WAY to high etc.

Re: e-ros

I have an E-ros six string bought new 1972. Superb guitar. If you have a problem with the action take the neck off and put a card between the neck and body until you get the right level. I have read a few of the comments on E-ros and all I can say is you must have a very cheap version. If you look inside the guitar you will should find the name Recanati which was the famous factory in Italy where Ekos were made.

Not much - I've got a 6-string model 406, which I bought new in the 70s. Built like a truck, nasty bolt-on neck, but a nicely proportioned Grand Concert-style body, no scratch-plate. Once I'd made a nut from a bit of ebony to replace the horrible stock black plastic one, and put a set of decent machines on it, it was OK(ish). Nice low action, and several people have remarked on its sweetness of tone. No bottom end, though, because of the bolt-on, crap woods, and a bloody great block of splintered deal shoved into the upper inside. Intonation is appalling : 'Blackbird' on an E-ros?...er, no - stick to 'Wonderwall'. The heaviest acoustic I've ever owned. Someone once told me that these guitars were budget Ekos, who were too embarrassed to put their name on the head, but I don't know the truth of that.

I have just picked up and sorted a black e-ros out for a friend. It was covered in concrete dust having had a long, unplayed but abused life. It is built like a tank and has a neck like a tree trunk but with a repair to the machine heads, a clean, lem oil treatment and a set of new D'addario strings it sounds good. A few of the struts inside have come away but this is probably the reason it sounds so good. My friend was delighted with it.

I talked to someone in the guitar business who said that they were made by eko.

Re: e-ros

I have a nice 12string bought '67/'68 never going to be a world beater but I still play it today. Have also black "Raven" 6 string and 12 string bought late
70's. 6 is great with good action 12 has thick neck and I had to raise the action in the manner stated in other reply it plays and sounds better when played as a 6 string.I too have been told that they are a budget eko.

Re: e-ros

I have a Dakota Mod 606. nice sound. Funny, met a busker in Portugul(albufeira) who played an e-ros. Don't know if he was at the fanny but said some of the older models are worth a lot of money. He reckoned his was worth £3500. Mind you he also said he was the drummer with the Detroit Emeralds in the 1960s

E-ros 12 string

Hi everyone. I also have one of e-ros guitars, it's a 12 string 612 nevada which my father bought used 30 years ago. Only bad thing about it is a high action. It also has very very thick neck, but I'm used to it. Yup, it might be harder to play, but when I play some other newer guitars they feel like toys. This thing is built like a tank. It has 2 truss rods, and it weighs a ton! I think sound is pretty sweet, better that budget Fender acoustics.

I have had this model for 40 years and wouldn't part with it, the sound is amazing, It is worth the effort.

E-ros 6 string

Yes these guitars are cheap but if you adjust the neck and bring the action down, put good strings on its not to bad as it does have a nice tone.
