OVERVIEW

An Italian stallion given a new chance to ride.

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. <br /><br>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 XII 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.<div><br></div><div>Case sold separately.</div>

        Comments about EKO Ranger XII Vintage Reissue 12-String Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

        I was looking for info on the Ranger and decided to leave my opinion. I recently came across a vintage Ranger from the sixties in near mint condition. As soon as I picked it up and played it, I knew it was heading home with me. These guitars are super nice. I don't know about the new Rangers, but they are made to last and feel & sound amazing. I added an L.R. Baggs PU. Take a chance...
