EKO Manta Bass '70 Natural - Vintage Italy shortscale Bass

Gorgeous vintage shortscale bass made in Italy in the early 70s.

The Manta Bass is all original and comes in a very rare and pretty natural finish.

It is in good condition. The only little flaw is that a tiny piece of the pickgaurd is missing (see photo)

Everything works as it should, the neck is straight, the action low, it plays and sounds great

The bass comes with 2 single coil pickups, a three-position selector and two controls (volume and tone).
It is shown in a very rare and captivating natural color with a glossy finish.
The Eko Manta model appeared in the Eko catalog in 1973, along with the various Indy, Kiwi, Sebring, Caiman and Camaro models.
The bass fuses different stylistic elements already known in something new and with an unexpectedly versatile and powerful sound (see video).
