Description: 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.
