From Italy’s largest guitar manufacturer, this 300 series instrument was more than likely built in Recanti, rather than Eko’s original facility in Castelfidardo. She is a small bodied arched top semi acoustic with, in this case, no sound holes at all. She has one pick-up and simple volume and tone controls that are not on a plate as so many of these are. The adjustable truss rod has kept the neck nice and straight and the frets are clean. The bridge on this instrument is a reproduction although the original, with it worn string grooves, is in the case. She is a lite-weight, comfortable rhythm player with a warm compact tone, a zero fret, and easy action that, at the time, was competing against the Hofner Club series. This particular EKO line was never really marketed in North America so you can be sure none of your friends have one. She will ship in her original particle board case.

We can use any of the major carriers you choose but will generally use UPS Ground. Shipping rates do not include insurance, but we encourage its use. Under no circumstances will we lower the cost of an instrument for international shipping purposes. Seriously. Don’t Ask. In sales of bolt-on neck guitars that do not ship with a hard shell case we will be happy to remove the neck and save you a little on the shipping cost. We ship to U.S. addresses only. No P.O. Boxes. We will always pack your item to the highest standards, if you have any preferences, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

In the unlikely event that you should want to return a guitar, please contact us. We want you to be happy, but we don’t want to eat a bowl of return shipping because ‘somebody’ made you send her back. If you get my meaning. Ahem. If, from the sale date, less than 14 days has gone by and you can rationally argue that the pictures were unclear or that we were inaccurate in our description than we will do our best to make it right. This usually means that lukewarm bowl of return shipping we mentioned earlier. Always remember we are talking about guitars here, and you being happy about one at that, so just contact us, we’ll sort it out.
