So here is the original that the Eastwood Rocket 6 copied, the Eko Rock IV. Eko Guitars was founded in 1959 by Oliviero Pigini and within a few years, became the biggest guitar producer in Europe. EKO is back with a new and wide variety of guitars, which will surprise for the accuracy within their building, for their excellent quality/price ratio, and for their look in typical 'œEKO style'.
EKO have an interesting array of Classical, Acoustic, Bass and Amps but their most interesting instruments by far are the electric guitars which seem to break away from traditional designs, just check the D-Tone, and 700. The D-Tone is similar to the Ibanez Voyager made famous by Reb Beach only it is a little more curvy. The Eko Rock IV on the other hand is more of a flying V inspired design, although I think the Eastwood Rocket 6 was more aptly named, I think Rock IV is a bit unimaginative to be honest!
