Echotone

Recommended Posts

Anybody here own an Echotone? I know that they weren't made in the USA but how is the quality and playability?

Loved mine. Pickups were a bit one-dimensional and the tuners weren't great, but it sounded great through the old Vibrolux. Stick to the 1st-gen Korean-made version.

For a short while I had an Ecotone and a 335.  I sold the 335.

It was my introduction to Hamers

Another import that I found nice was a mid-‘90s Sheraton. I loaded it with 57 Classis and it sounded better than a 335 I had back in the day.

I have a Chinese one that is astoundingly good for what I paid for it.  It's the only Chinese guitar I've ever kept.  Full disclosure, I don't play it plugged in, if I did the China pickups would surely have to go.

^^^This. After selling the Echotone I - needed - to fill that gap and found a 2001 Sheraton (Samick factory) that is easily one of the best - if not THE best - imports I've ever played. Extremely well-made and the fit-and-finish is far better than expected. An absolutely fantastic guitar that punches waaay above its weight.
