Vintage Italian guitar dated between 1964-1967, model 100/2.

F'n cool guitar/antique, sad to see it go but going overseas traveling soon and am only taking my acoustic.

Great 2 play. Excellent condition for age apart from a few stress lines near f holes (they look worse in photos than they are and they haven't got bigger in the time I've owned the guitar). They don't affect the sound at all.

A versatile 2-pickup electric guitar; also thin line hollow body acoustic arch-top w/f-holes. Good 4 indie-pop/alt-rock.
Grunty sound when cranked thru distortion + great natural tone. Nice resonance & good sustain 4 hollow body, due solid neck (same neck as used by Vox, '67-68, made by Eko under contract).

Not too big and not too heavy. Pickup switches stem from Ekos history as piano accordion company. The 4 switches: neck p/up, bridge p/up, both p/ups, & "off" - a handy feature & silent to use.

Comes with a case which may be the original but I have no way of knowing. Very thin case, more for decoration/storage.

A timepiece 4 collectors interested in what've become known as "fetish guitars". (see Jimmy at bottom)

Has all the chic of the 1967 Eko era, when at the front end of the Italian fashion scene of the times.


These were mid-price instruments in their day. Ekos ethos was to provide affordable instruments of good quality. As instruments they r not in the league of American Gibsons or Gretch's but they have unique charm, a significant cult following, & were used by a number of famous, mostly European, artists.

Would suit someone who is going to play it more than me/an old timer who wants to relive the glory days.
