Eko 500/3v made in Italy 1962-65, with 3x pickups, vibrato and unreal accordion inspired latching pickup switching system. Harness has been rewired with improved pots and the amplified sound is smooth and sweet and fully functional. Believe the pickups are AlNiCo 5. Faux striped wood top and faux mahogany back (both plastic). Check the wooden caps on the vol/tone knobs and the cross inlay. Nice setup and medium-thin neck. Excellent cosmetic condition with only minor blemishes. Includes original hardshell case. This guitar is almost 60 years old!
