Eko


This Italian manufacturer of guitars and basses fitted some models with DeArmond pickups during the late 1960s.

This Rokes 12-string solid-body arrow-shaped guitar is fitted with one Model 2000 pickup.  The pickup seems to be fixed by means of four screws through the pickguard into the four holes in the bezel which is located under the pickguard.

Other Eko guitars seen include a solid-body bass with two Model 1000 pickup heads with red inserts.

Another arrow-shaped guitar is fitted with one slanted Model 41 pickup without the DeArmond logo.
