OVERVIEW

An Italian stallion given a new chance to ride, and now with electronics.

In 1962, EKO decided to produce a series of folk guitars because of popular demand by Italian and foreign markets. After thorough market research, they chose a dreadnought shape which was popular in the U.S. at the time. Initially the 6-string J54 was produced. It was an immediate success due to style, playability and price. It wasn’t long until there was a demand for a 12-string version, especially in US and UK, which led to the J56, as it was named until ‘67. In a relatively short time, the J56 became the best-selling 12-string guitar on the market.

In 1967, both the 6-string and 12-string went through a restyle and the new versions were showcased under the names of Ranger VI and Ranger XII. EKO is continuing the tradition of the Ranger with Vintage Reissue 6- and 12-string versions. The Ranger is the guitar that truly represents the history of EKO. Its a guitar that has been very prominent in the past, continues to be very important today, and will surely help define the future of EKO. The Ranger VI Vintage Reissue brings new life to the most beautiful and interesting features used in the past, and has added modern electronics for today's performers.

Comments about EKO Ranger VI Vintage Reissue Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

Just got this guy....interesting guitar. some of the stock description is incorrect, the nut is steel or stainless steel and sits in a weird half fret area above the first fret (I have an old meazzi guitar with the same arrangement. the saddle is plastic and sits in a metal u shaped holder that you can adjust the height with the supplied alan key, handy, don't have to remove the saddle to lower the action. overall the thing is heavy and well built. had some work getting it playable though, it tuned up easy enough but there was that weird twang on the B string, usually tweeking the truss rod cures that, but it didn't, raising and lowering the saddle didn't fix it, changing the straight plastic saddle to a compensated plastic saddle didn't help either.....maybe one of the upper frets? got a little frustrating, then I decided to just change the strings, usually the first thing to do with a 300.00 guitar and that was that, no twang, weird, but this is an Italian guitar company (not to be racist, I'm Italian) so anyway, the fishman electronics are adequate, not a big fan of sound hole mounted controls but fortunately the 9 volt battery is located at the bottom of the lower bout next to the 1/4" jack as apposed to some guitars with a velcroed holder buried inside the guitar. this guitar is a strummer for sure and after I beat it up at home for awhile I'll do a gig with it.
