The Ranger Futura model by Eko Guitars was created to celebrate what is probably the most representative guitar of the Italian brand, the Eko Ranger. Ranger Futura is designed and assembled in Italy using solid Italian Spruce for the top, figured Okoume for back, sides and neck, South American Roupana for fingerboard and bridge. The bracing is specifically designed for Futura, and is made entirely in solid Italian Spruce.
The newly designed truss rod consists of three carbon bars positioned and fixed inside the neck. A fundamental feature is the neck / body joint which, as in the historical Eko Ranger, is made using four screws. This choice, in addition to preserving the Eko tradition, (it has been taken as a standard by other important and famous brands), allows to keep the production cost more contained and at the same time give the instrument very interesting features of attack, response and sustain: especially when compared with guitars in the same price range.
The sixties-inspired Decal rosette is the detail that immediately catapults us into the atmosphere of the time. The hole has an ivory-color Abs binding.
The Grover tuning machines ensure a stable and precise tuning.
The single coil pickup, removable, allows you to effectively amplify the new Ranger Futura and at the same time it fits perfectly with the vintage line of the instrument.
