Eko was one of the bigest instrument manufacturer in Europe in the 1960's.
Based in Italy and originaly manufacturer of Accordions, Eko started making Guitars at the end of the 1950's and grew to become one of the biggest European manufacturer, building guitars for brands like Vox, Welson, Goya...
On top of being visually striking and highly original compared to its American counter part, Eko proposed a different feel and a different sound than most of the guitars and basses out there in the 60's.
The result is instruments with looks and sounds you won't find anywhere else... probably one of the reason why collectors are nowadays very interested in the Ekos.
This is a classic Eko 500 V4 in a beautifull Faded Gold Sparkle finish from the early 1960's.
The V4 stands for FOUR single coil pickups.
Also very rare, even amongst the Ekos, the pickguards (one for the electronic and one for the trem bar) have edges with the Italian flag colors and the tail cover (ashtray).
This Italian Vintage is great shape and plays great, producing very versatile sounds, from deep and bassy to bright and "twangy" (Watch Video).
This is a perfect exemple of the very collectable Ekos every guitarist should have as part of ones collection, exclusively at Guitare Collection, Paris !
