Has anybody seen one of these?

Luckily it's a six string - ideal for the guitard in your life but no good to anybody you actually like...

Would come as no surprise if it wasn't actually an EKO.

Probably homemade by someone who is more comfortable working with metal than wood. Perhaps the Eko neck was from Brandoni as they bought up a load of stuff from the Eko factory when it closed in the late 80s

My thoughts exactly...

Hadn’t realised Brandoni had those spare necks.  Looks like that could be it.  Was tempted as it’s near me, thought the body might have made a donor body for a double bass type build

Brandoni has/had a TON of stuff from Eko.

One of the most playable guitar necks I ever experienced was on an old Eko jumbo. It had the unusual and reviled zero fret.

If you ever need a GAS booster take a trip to their unit in Wembley - loads of vintage gear, including those neck through natural finish BX7(??) basses.

No point looking at their website - they have loads more gear in the workshop than on the site.
