Thereís a slightly long winded story to me buying this guitar. Iím not a fan of acoustic guitars generally; however one of my friendís fathers has a 196? Eko ranger 6 (bolt on neck heavy as a planet) and one day back in the mists of time I was given a loan of said guitar for a night and it has spoiled my view of all other acoustic guitar since. Iíve never found one I like as much (and Iíve tried hundreds) so I never bought myself a "good" acoustic. Then last month I got another loan of said Ranger 6 and decided I had to get one and after a month of trying to find a good one here it is... (why didnít I do this years ago????)




These pics are from the auction Iíll post some better ones tomorrow

I canít recommend these guitars highly enough... now that you wonít be going after the same one I want.

Beautiful sounding vintage guitars that donít cost as much as a house.

I recently sold an Eko Ranger 12 string to a guy in Belgium. I had had it for years and it needed work...it wasn't until I googled it that I realised Jimmy Page played one and the one I was selling was from the mid-60s...they're very nice guitars, although the one I had needed extensive work.

don't let it near me or it's bound to end up with a humbucker in it.
