Story

EKO Guitars started in Italy in 1959 by Oliviero Pigini. It soon became the largest guitar manufacturer in Europe producing a half million guitars a year.

Although primarily distributed throughout Europe, some models found their way to North America in the 1960’s via Milwaukee’s LoDuca brothers. Many of these “budget” guitars were purchased by our parents as student guitars and found their way into the back of a closet.

The ultra-rare Rocket IV, or Rok Bass is one of our favorites to have come about in the '60s. Those of you who remember The Rokes are bound to recognize this iconic shape. It's been over a decade since we last built these ones, so we figured it was high time to Bring it Back!

This version will keep things simple and straight to the point with a single EW RTG HB pickup, and individual volume and tone controls. All that's necessary to get the job done!

**NOTE** Images shown are of our original run from 2006, not a prototype. They are shown only as a reference for our intended design.
