darwinphilosophy Posted August 17, 2007 Report Share Posted August 17, 2007 I recently purchased what was supposedly an Eko body, never stated what model but I looked at pictures and it looks like a Kadett, but it is different in a few ways. It was also said that is was built in the 60's which I know most Ekos were. My concern is that it is not an Eko, which I don't really care that much if it is or isn't...but I would like to know if it is actually from the 60's and who made it, if it is Eko or not. I have a few pictures to show you guys. I can tell you obviously by the pictures that it is routed for two pickups(I have only seen Kadetts with three)Its neck pocket is about 2". The holes on the neck pocket are all parallel, I have always thought Eko/Vox guitars have angled neck pocket holes. I tried to see if the pickguard screws match up with Kadetts but it is difficult to tell. Also the horns are angled or curved instead of being flat like on the Kadetts(if that makes sense). The body appears to be one piece, which shows a sign of being built well, so not some cheap knock-off. Well thank you for your help guys, I was hoping for a vintage body I can rebuild hopefully I didn't get ripped off.
