Nice little Ebay score, an Eko bowlback electric bouzouki. Neck is slightly warped, but it plays like a million bucks. The amplified sound is amazing, too.

Wow, that looks to be in great nick!

A friend of mine was house/pet sitting recently and there was the exact same bouzouki, laying on top of a pile of busted up, dusty guitars and old cases in the corner of the sitting room. It wasn't in playable condition though, neck was very warped, and apparently the folks who's house it was had bought it as a "wall hanger" on the cheap.

Cheers,
Jill

I like the eagles regurgitating music. A lovely thought. I guess it is the mother eagle feeding her musically inclined young?

Here's a catalog scan.. (http://www.ekobass.co.uk/gallery-photos/catalogue1.html)

If you're interested in the fretless ABG, I've got one of those and will entertain offers, LOL.

I ended up with a new old stock 6 string version of the same one at the top of the page. Non electric though. I'll entertain any offers if anyone is interested. PM me...
