This is a 1964 vintage EKO J52 Dreadnought shape acoustic guitar. I bought it new in 1964 and have been playing it until a few weeks ago when I finally succumbed to pressure from the family to splash out on a new (and very expensive) machine.

I haven't done anything to the guitar before photographing (so you can see it as it is), and to be fair, it would benefit from a good clean, particularly the machine-head end (mostly dust) and the neck; and a new set of strings. As you would expect of a 47 year old guitar, there are marks on it; 4 cracks in the varnish on the front, and some damage to the end that you can see in the third photo (a chunk of the glaze knocked out on the right, and some minor chips on the left going round the corner, but none that penetrate the wood). The rest is in pretty good shape, and you can see that the back and neck are still really nice.

Given all that, and the fact that the frets are obviously showing wear, it still plays very well, and has a really comfortable neck (probably more comfortable than on the one I have just bought). It would certainly make an excellent first guitar, or may add to someones collection of old(ish) models. It's certainly worth £25 of anyone's money - in my view anyway!

It comes without a case - the original was a soft carrying bag that perished many moons ago. Partly for this reason, it is collection only.
