Thread Name: 60/70s guitars
Subject: RE: 60/70s guitars
I have recently had my Italian bred 1968 EKO Ranger 12-string renovated. Sounds better now than I ever remember 20 years ago and all who have played it love it. Yes, she's heavy, but then my 12-string Tak is too.
The sound is a lot 'lighter' than most modern 12-strings I have heard but it's sweet and not at all 'bassy'. I love all five of my guitars but I confess to having a soft spot for the EKO. We have been through a lot in 40 years. My others are all 6-strings: 2 x Aria and 1 x Tak
I cannot comment on Hawks, unfortunately, but this thread tells me I should at least have a go on one some day.
