An uncompromising series based on a selection of woods from all over the world. The WOW series, (WOW is the acronym of Wood of the World, but also the exclamation of those who see these guitars for the first time), represents the top of the EKO catalog range.
Each single one of these guitars is unique and each piece of wood is selected from a wide range of fine materials such as Cocobolo, Ovangkol, Koa, Ebano and others.
Roberto Fontanot Master Luthier carefully selects the woods for each instrument, creating masterpieces that will make every musician happy. The variety of woods used for back and sides in each guitar will give these instruments completely different sound characteristics.
The choice of the wood for the top has fallen on the Italian Spruce chosen in a best-quality highly figured version, coming from a region of the Alps known for supplying woods used in the production of the best violins in the world: only a few producers can access these private reserves.
Based on the EKO 018 design, the WOW guitar shape features very compact size with a reduced depth, in order to produce an immediate sound response, avoiding the annoying emphasis of the lower frequencies.
As tuning machines, we have choosen the qualitatively impeccable Grover Vintage open gear Butterbean, in Gold or Chrome Eko Design finishes. The bridge also is conceived and designed by Eko.
