Eko are an Italian company - I have heard good reports about their acoustic guitars before. (I have an Eko Mandolin Banjo, which is not the greatest - it won't stay in tune with 8 strings, but with 4 it's ok).

Some info on Eko here:


and their website here:


Hope this helps

I have a 40-something year old EKO acoustic that my Mum bought in the 60s when she was in her hippy Hendrix/Deep Purple/King Crimson/etc phase. I taught myself how to play guitar on this (insert witty "you didn't teach yourself that well!", etc phrases here) in High School, and it almost beat me. Turns out it is a Spanish flemenco style guitar, which means it has a neck wider than Vanessa Feltz' ass. But, it sounds and plays really nicely once you get used to it, and it helps teach you to stretch those digits!!
