FOR SALEA super clean EKO ranger 12 string guitar from the early 1970, s complete with the original hard case and the original shop hang tag! Together with 2 spare bridge pins. Plays like a dream with a lovely action. I had a Ranger 12 string. Easiest action ever on a 12. It was destroyed in a car wreck in 1973 in Limon Colorado. I was just back from the VN war. A drunk ran a red light. With the insurance money, I replaced it with my first Guild - a 1972 D-25. I would have bought another EKO 12. But no store sold EKO's in the US.
Eko Guitar Serial NumbersFirstly, it's not a Ranger but an earlier J56. OK, it's built exactly the same as a Ranger but this puts it in the '65 - '68 bracket.
There's a serial number but I'm struggling to find any online resource to help date it more accurately. Not even Mr Brandoni knows.
The body is in fantastic condition. No hideous laquer cracks like a lot of these guitars were prone to having. Just a couple of honest dings.
The neck is straight as an arrow, lovely inlays & pretty good repro tuners (that will be changed to original ones soon).
The pickguard is missing but there's no damage from it being removed, just a paler tide mark where the guard used to be.

Eko Ranger 6Again, I can get a NOS period correct (b/w/b) guard for it. They only cost £8 from Brandoni.
I think I did well for £100 + £8 postage.
