1967 Eko 820/4V "Condor" Solidbody Electric, Candy Apple Red.



The "more buttons the better" approach was used by a lot of European Guitar makers back in the 60's and this Italian one doesn't let the side down in that respect. I meet a lot of people who talk about the Eko and Eston (same company from my understanding) guitars they had "back in the old days", but they are mostly talking of 6 and 12 string acoustic guitars, which obviously sold here in Australia. So for me, this guitar is a little unusual and quite rare. Candy Apple Red Top, Pearloid Back, Rosewood Fretboard, more pickup combinations than one might normally need, makes for a pretty neat guitar. Neck is straight, the action is low, with a pretty good fret level, so it is playable and cool as well!
