Eko "Rio Bravo" (1965)

It has a Dreadnought size, a little larger than usual, with a long scale of 64.5 cm.

Pine-spruce top and the rest (8 sides and back) of 3D mahogany, very high quality woods.

It is X-braced and has a very nice sound, with great sustain. The background is somewhat arched.

It is the predecessor of the Ranger model although it has a more stylized bridge and differs in a few details.

The mast is of traditional construction, glued not screwed.

The original pickguard was lost, and a new one has been fitted. All other parts are original.

It has a rosewood fingerboard with large mother-of-pearl blocks as fret markers. It also has fine work on the headstock, with mother of pearl, and all-metal tuners.

These guitars were highly appreciated for their high manufacturing quality, very good materials, good performance and great sound. Led Zeppelin's Jimmy Page played them in concert in the early 1970s.

It has been thoroughly revised and restored as little as necessary.

It has a few minor dings and scratches on the varnish, and a small dent on one side that has been repaired and is firm. It tunes, octave and plays perfectly

To highlight the neck, excellent in every way, it has an adjustable bar that reaches up to the last cm, and that allows a perfect adjustment, the separation of the strings is ideal for those who do not like tightness. Very comfortable to touch!

The most successful European guitar in history. At least 100,000 were made, including six- and twelve-string configurations, but the actual number could be closer to 200,000. Under various names and versions, it was a mainstay of the Eko range for over twenty years.
