I agree, Sal.

Made in Recanati ITALY by the Fratelli Fuselli Brothers in the late 1960's or early 1970's.

I think Jimmy Page owns one, but they usually go for just around a hundred bucks, or a 90 at the most.

Notoriously high action and chunky necks.
:/
Am I alone in this?

I had a 12 string Eros a few years back. It was virtually identical to the Eko Ranger 12. Made in the same factory as I remember.
Built like a tank and played like a dog.

Looks very cool, rather reminiscent of the acoustics Ryan Adams is often seen with. I've never played an Eros but as has been mentioned, they're basically a rebadged Eko.

= A polished turd, no?

The Ryan Adams guitar you mention is his black Harmony Sovereign H1264, I think.
