Seamus, UK. My dad gave me his J64 22 years ago. He got it in the early 60's. It still has the label from the music shop in Glasgow where it was origionally bought.

It's been a good friend. I took it tramping with me round the UK many years ago. I don't play it now, the neck is warped from all the sleeping rough we did together.

john from UK here. Just bought an Eros 12 string from a music festival in the Summer. The Eros bran was pretty similar to Eko, ie use of bolt on necks etc, and this ones no exception. I will post picture when I get back from Italy.

The owner of the company is reputed to be the brother of the mnan that ran Eko.

I've probably mentioned this previously but I have a Silvertone (Sears) made for them by EKO in the (what?) early sixties late fifites. Has the bolt on neck. A concertish shape and a nice tone considering it is from the tree of Ply. The top layer of the laminate has split a bit on the back and it doesn't have the delightful interior of a higher priced guitar but I like it. Nice action. SHould probably change the strings. I have coated strings on it and, I don't know, I'm not a fan. What do you think?

I will  post one in a couple of days , painting the inside of my house today & tomorrow, Will get the house back together, then I want to get back in to singing & playing again. I also got myself a GA7 taylor last summer I like it also,but I still prefer the 12 strings. I have an Ovation that I have to get some work done on.

  I will be back here soon.
