A really cool 1965 EKO Model 995 Hollow Body Beatle Bass .. I have sold a bunch of these and no, its not the one I just sold last year. I got another. I love having these for my customers. They all love them. I played one myself for years and always enjoyed these light weight beauties! Original Hard Shell Case makes this an awesome find!
These cool basses have been featured by many Bass Players from the 1960's like The Doors and The Grass Roots among many others.
I have posted a video demo of not this one but another that I sold last year. It sounds and looks almost exactly like it so please ask any questions about the sound or looks.
These cool Made in Italy basses have a Spruce carved top and check out the Birds-eye Maple back and sides. Its beautiful. The pickups sound great. This guitar is complete with all original parts. It even has the EKO branded Pickguard, and bridge with COVER!! Original tuners, and everthing ... Our Techs have it set up with easy playing low action with a set of new strings. Perfect Thump to them.
Very few dings or scratches on this cool bass. Just normal playing wear. The frets are still in great shape! It plays great!! The Pickups are strong and very deep...love the growl from these single coil EKO Pickups.
Any cracks you may see in the pics are only finish crazing cracks. There is no body or wood cracks on this bass. Italians sprayed their Nitro finishes heavy back in the 1960's. Vox guitars have the same malady. So please know that these are finish cracks...not wood or body cracks..
The original Italian EKO Factory Sticker is inside the body cavity under the Bass F hole.... It is impossible for me to shoot a pic of it thru the sound hole but its there.
The case is as nice as the Bass. Original Case with working handle, latches and hinges. Really nice case for this bass. Even the accessory box is still in it...Could use some detailing but I'll leave that to the new owner. Most of these guitars came with a softshell Case. Its awesome that I have the Hardshell ORIGINAL Case...they look a lot like the Vox Bass Cases...probably the same manufacturer from Italy as Vox!
Sold as-is no returns as its vintage and used, however...I have been hand picking out vintage guitars for my customers for over 20 years now and they have all loved them. This hand picked bass that I found will not be an exception.
Thanks for looking at our cool guitars
