The MIA IV SA (Semi-Acoustic) represents the return of a very successful Eko guitar. A hollow body inspired by the historical Eko Barracuda, but in a slightly lightened version: a thinner profile and a more "stylish" shape.
A Semi-Acoustic in Solid wood, made light by the choice of Paulonia, with a flamed Maple top, a Mahogany neck and a Parinari Campestris fingerboard. Roupanà is a wood chosen by Eko Guitars to replace the Rosewood after its inclusion among the protected species.
The headstock of the MIA IV SA allows the strings to have a perfectly linear trajectory from the mechanics up to the bridge, eliminating friction points on the nut typical of the semi-acoustic guitars and allowing to have an instrument with tuning stability and excellent sustain characteristics.
The "vintage" style of the pickups hides two very powerful and balanced humbuckers (Alnico 5) that can be split by the push-push potentiometer, increasing the versatility of this instrument.
