Eko guitar Eko was founded by Oliviero Pigini in Italy in 1959. It was the largest musical instruments firm in Europe from 1964 until the 1970’s. It was also one of the largest European exporters of guitars to the United States. A significant part of the history is also tied to that of the Lo Duca Brothers. Eko produced organs and guitars for Vox and was a leader in the distribution of musical instruments in Italy.

Eko guitars gained high popularity during the rock'n'roll craze of the 1960's, becoming the largest guitar exporter in Europe. Their electric models were often highly ornamented with pearl, featured 3 or 4 pickups and recognizable rocker switches for pickup selection. The acoustic models were popular in country and folk rock bands of the late 60's.
