RANGER 6 NATURAL VISUAL NOTE BY EKO GUITARS OVERVIEW
Visual Note is a device consisting of an LED foil and a control unit that can be attached directly to the guitar fretboard (electric, acoustic, classical) and an APP that can manage all its functions. Visual Note is primarily aimed at guitar students and teachers, providing all the necessary tools for both learning and teaching. This system allows you to learn guitar independently, where, when and how you want, following the guiding lights directly on the guitar fretboard and reference audio. If you are a teacher, you can assign exercises, scales, arpeggios and songs (via APP) that the student will instantly view and follow on his or her own fretboard. A super interactive, direct, engaging teaching and learning method, teaching 2.0.
Eko Ranger 6 features the classic Dreadnought shape with a Spruce top and Linden back and sides. The neck is Okoumé with a 20-fret South American Roupana fingerboard, plastic saddle and capo. Ranger is definitely the word that resonates most in Eko's history and has helped establish it as a brand at the European level. Originally named J-52, this guitar was updated and improved each time until the J-54 (6-string) and J-56 (12-string) versions were named Ranger VI and Ranger XII respectively in 1967. Famous for their excellent value for money and indestructibility, they can still be found in the homes of many guitarists today, perhaps in a corner of the living room as a piece of furniture. Perfect for those taking their first step into the world of acoustic guitar playing, they are available in multiple color variations: Natural, Black, Blue Sunburst, Brown Sunburst and Red Sunburst.
