Marco Polo is the Travel and Parlor series of acoustic guitars by Eko Guitars, inspired by the well-known traveler. The idea of a smaller and more comfortable guitar but with a strong and recognizable tone is completed by the careful choice of the woods that compose it.
All models feature Mahogany neck and South American Roupanà fingerboard, while on the top, sides and back we have these variants:
SO: top in Solid Spruce, sides and back in Solid Ovankol
MM: solid mahogany top, sides and back
SZ: top in Solid Spruce, sides and back in Solid Ziricote
SM: top in solid spruce, sides and back in solid mahogany
The series consists of three Traveler (T) models and one Parlor (P) model, united by the Flex Blend by Fishman amplification system: consisting of a piezo and internal condenser microphone, this system allows you to capture every nuance of the guitar thanks to the possibility to gradually add the signal picked up by the microphone to the piezo signal, by means of a “blend” potentiometer. Among the controls, in addition to the output volume and the blend, there is a tuner on the display (activated by pressing the volume potentiometer) and an EQ control that works in "mid-scooped" mode: kept to a minimum the signal is not equalized ( flat), increasing gradually reduces the mid frequencies in favor of low and high frequencies, very convenient for obtaining a sound “ready” for the mix. In the event that the guitar should have feedback problems, a very common situation in the acoustic field, it is possible to invert the phase by pressing the EQ potentiometer.
With 610mm scale, except for the Parlor model which has 630mm scale, and 43mm nut width, the Marco Polo models are practical, comfortable and ideal for the musician on the go. The specially developed semi-rigid case facilitates transport and guarantees maximum protection while on the move.
A detail that makes Eko Guitars Marco Polo's unique is the rosette, designed to house the word traveler engraved in all the languages of the world.
