"The guitar is an extension of my imagination" - Massimo Varini
In his role as EKO Project leader it was a must for EKO to let Massimo Varini be the first to design a signature. Many of the unique features of this signature have been adopted also on other EKO models.
The Massimo Varini Signature is an all solid top level acoustic guitar.
The main features requested by the Artist include the High Grade Selected Cedar Solid Top combined with selected Rosewood solid back and sides, nut width of 45 mm, short scale of 630 mm, special Artist Logo at the XI and XII fret, reduced body thickness of 82 mm to 102 mm, Fishman Rare Earth Blend sound hole magnetic pickup with condenser microphone (optional).
