Eko Marco Polo SO with Padded Bag


The Marco Polo T500e SO comes in Natural color with Gloss finish and Travel shape, ideal to be carried comfortably anywhere. The combination of Italian Solid Spruce top and Solid Ovangkol back and sides, result of careful research, gives this instrument a very wide tonal spectrum always well balanced on every single string. The whole MARCO POLO series is All Solid, therefore, with top, sides and back in solid wood, the nature of the wood is enhanced in favor of a particularly specific tone.
A remarkable feature is the presence of the Fishman Flex Blend: a high-performance amplification system consisting of a piezo and an internal condenser microphone, allowing you to capture every nuance of the guitar thanks to the possibility of gradually adding the microphone signal to the piezo signal through a Blend pot. In addition to the output volume and the Blend control, the Marco Polo T500e SO boasts a Tuner with display (that can be activated by pressing the volume potentiometer) and an EQ control working in “mid-scooped” mode: set it at minimum for a flat signal, then increase it to gradually reduce the mid frequencies enhancing bass and treble, very convenient to get a sound ready for the mix. In case of feedback, a quite common event during acoustic performances, you can invert the phase by pressing the EQ pot. In case of feedback, a quite common event during acoustic performances, you can invert the phase by pressing the EQ pot. All these features together make the Marco Polo T500e SO a suitable instrument in professional contexts, both in the recording studio and on stage.
