With a dreadnought body made entirely of Linden the Laredo guitar is part of EKO's flagship series with FastLOK technology. The C-shaped neck is made of Birch and complemented by a Rosewood fingerboard whilst the brown sunburst finish gives the guitar a traditional style.
The FastLOK system allows quick and immediate adjustments of this guitar without having to remove the strings. Easily adapt the guitar to your playing style or switch the neck completely and play this acoustic with the feeling of an electric guitar.
The Eko Laredo guitar allows you to set the action by adapting the angle between neck and body through simply rotating the allen key included with this guitar, at the back. This means if you are a musician who plays many different genres of music you can make the adjustments you need quickly and easily all on one guitar. Set the action high for blues or lower for strumming or fingerpicking styles.
Because the design of this system changes the actual angle between the neck, rather than simply sliding the neck up or down, the Eko Laredo achieves a natural string and fingerboard interaction every time. The quality is not affected but the feel, sound and playability of your guitar changes as you move the key. The two way truss-rod combines with this FastLOK technology to provide even more control over the fingerboard. In fact, an added bonus with these guitars is that the truss rod works for the complete number of frets rather than just the first fourteen as is the case with many glued neck guitars.
As well as these minor adjustments, by removing a single screw the guitar neck can be easily removed making it ideal for travelling or easily allowing for complete neck substitutions if you would like to switch the necks for varying styles of play. Perfect for musicians who want one guitar that can do it all it is quite possible that this new FastLOK technology will become another milestone is acoustic guitar manufacturing.
