Re: GRECO

: I want to know about Greco Guitars

I own a 1984 Greco Les Paul in black. It is in good condition for its use and plays beautifully. It has the diamond on the headstock with Greco ( the G in greco is similar to Gibsons G ) just above it. The difference with this guitar is it is one piece construction similar to Gibson and weighs a ton, literally. I also have a 1976 Ibanez Les Paul Goldtop. Sadly the previous owner stripped the paint off it. But it too plays well. I find a good comparison to Greco-Ibanez guitars would be something like Epiphone etc. Here in Australia we were flooded with good cheap copies in the 70's and 80's. It was no big deal to pick up an immaculate Ibanez in case for around $200.00! I too am looking for me info on these. let me know if you come across anymore. Regards, David.

Re: GRECO

: I want to know about Greco Guitars
Hi. I owned a Greco Les Paul copy in the seventies. I was
told that it was actually Ibanez guitars that was made for the japanese market but for some reason they didn't give them the Ibanez name. In Scandinavia they were imported by The Brothers Jorgensen, I belive they were located in Copenhagen.

Levin guitars.

May you can tell me more about it.

Thanks,Ray.

Re: Levin guitars.

The Levin Guitar Company was a Swedish firm who were founded by HC Levin in the early 1900s. HC Levin came from Goteburg and was a trainee luthier with Martin in the States before setting up Levin back in Sweden. The company was bought over by Martin in the early 1970s not because of their large stock of wood, but because their guitars were becoming a little too good...

The Goliath was a Dreadnought shape with a spruce top. The thin necks compliment an action akin to an electric guitar. A rich and deep bass tone made the Goliath a guitar to rival and beat any other including the best Gibsons and Martins.

Thomas's Goliath guitar was recently restored by Jimmy Moon of Moon Guitars in Glasgow and plays and sounds as good as ever. There is one other Goliath in Shetland, currently residing in Whalsay.

I recently saw a 3/4 size Levin made in 1906. The condition is fair and it sounds wonderful. Would anybody have an idea what is a fair price for such an instrument?

Re: Levin guitars.

: :I have found a Levin guitar - 6 string, normal guitar neck, but with a large flat back oval "mandolin" style body - anyone know anything about Levin producing such an instrument - I think I'll buy it because it is obviously old and unusual !

hofner restoration

Dear Sir,
I have 2 hofner guitars. The first one is one of the Club series, which has a missing tortioseshell plate, pickguard,knobs,bridge and saddles.
The second one is like a 463/s (I'm not really sure), with the top paint stripped of and a supposed 3rd(middle) humbucker's slot, covered with wood.
I need to talk to people who can answer all my Hofner questions.

TNX.

Re: Harmony guitars

i have a wood harmony guitar made in the early 70's and i am looking for an apraisal on this guitar to know how much it is worth i believe the serial number is H732WA, if anyone could help me i would appreciate it, thank you.

Re: Harmony guitars

my appraisal for you my friend would be if this guitar is in very good shape than you could get at least 700 for it. I sold my guitar and it was the same description as yours and i gave the guy a good deal by giving him 4 free blow jobs and fucked his butt 3 times a day. so if you dont want to sell it for money i will do the same for you. E- mail me your reply thank you.

Re: Harmony guitars

I have one harmony guitar that I need information on. I believe it's an imitation Fender Stratocaser, in a 3-color sunburst. I would like to know what model it is, I believe in might be a '57 Stratocaster. How can I find out what model it really is?

Re: Harmony guitars

I bought a Harmony Marquis Guitar, solid body, that looks kind of a Les Paul but a little bit thinner, and no paint.
Looks just amazing and has a really good sound. I think it probably doesn´t have original pickups. Do you have any pictures of yours?? send me if you have.

Thanks

Re: Harmony Marquis - Pictures

I know these posting are ancient but I'm giving it a try. I've had a Harmony Marquis that sounds like what you were talking about and have been in love with it from day 1, especially since it's got 2 circa 1970 Gibson engraved PAF pick-ups on it that just scream.
If you are still interested, I've got some pictures and can send them. Please do the same if you have any

Thanks a lot - Bonjour de la France !!
