Goya Guitar info if possible please

I bought a Goya guitar back in 2002. I have been very happy with it and am curious about it's history! The label inside shows, Goya M-100, Serial Number 4,932. Handmade in Korea.

Where can I find info on this guitar?

Thank you!

Levin G30

Hi, I have a Levin G30, headstock A.B. Levin made in 1964 in original case and in beautiful condition.
I don't really play nylon guitars and picked it up at a flea market in 70's, since then it has been stored in the case and I would rather see it go to a passionate player.
I also have been living overseas for many years so didn't really want to risk plane flights with it.
Its at my parents place in Australia and I will be going there in March 2019. If anyone is interested in it I will take some pics and post when I'm there. I took it to work one day and the other music teacher heard it from a distance and came running over, he played it and said it was better sounding than his $4000 classical he had recently purchased in Spain. He offered to buy it but at the time I did not want to part with it. 20 years later and it not being played I have a feeling of guilt as I am not a collector and would rather someone else had the pleasure.

Levin G30 for sale still?

Hi I read your post abt selling your guitar (Levin G30) and wondered if it's still available? Thanks.





Goya G-10 serial number 16C602


I have my mother's old Goya G-10 classical guitar. The serial number is 16C602. Inside on the label below the Goya script logo is written: Goya Guitars Inc. New York 10, N.Y. -- Under that is written: Made in Sweden. I would like to know the year of this guitar. Does anyone know the year based on this information? Is there a resource for looking it up? Thanks for any help.

I'm just trying to find out what my Vintage Goya is really worth (Pre Martin)!

The only way for you to find

The only way for you to find out the true value is to put it up for sale and see what somebody is willing to pay for it. You can start high. Also you can go to other sites to see what other guitars have sold for...

Missing my Goya

I was in college in Austin Texas and ran short of cash.
I went to a pawn shop in south Austin and pawned my handmade in Sweden, acoustic 6 steel stringed with hardshell gold felt case. The headstock was a very unique carving. The color was a gorgeous mahogany color. Picks, capo, cleaning cloth, all the necessities for your guitar- were in the case.
Sadly, I was not able to buy it back.  

I have been looking for it ever since.  At that same pawn shop in the eighties, I came close.  It was there, pawned yet again.  I saw it, touched it, it was older, a bit more worn but still beautiful in its golden felt case.  I left my name and numbers.  No one ever called.

And I still search...

For you Goya patrons, you know the ache that's inside when you've played a Goya and then it's gone.
I'm 63 now, and still remember.  

I don't know the model number or style. It had a label inside indicating it was "handmade in Sweden".  It was bought by my Mom for me in Beaumont Texas for $350 USD.  Back in '72, that was a fortune!!!

In the story of lost love, this has been a love lost to me.  My songwriting has been empty since that guitar has been gone.

Goyá F25

I have a very nice, solid wood (rare) and highly collectable Goyá F25 for sale. The fretboard has the bass side dot markers and the frets are in good condition. The label was torn but still retains the maker, and address. The serial is gone and an examination of the interior offered no help. I'm fairly certain that it is a mid 60's model and it's a great player. I have silk and.steel strings on it and this baby just purrs. The action is very good and the neck and body are straight. There are couple of cracks on the soundboard but they don't affect playability. One seems to have been cleated but I will leave the others as is so that the buyer can decide what he wants to do. As expected the finish has crazing and a few scratches but nothing serious. I can furnish a case if needed or wanted but this will add to the shipping costs so it's up to buyer. This is being sold "as is" and I will be posting pictures soon. I'm asking $999.99 but might consider some bartering for good classical electric cutaway.

Your guitar

Did you sell it? If so, did you get the asking price? If nit, how much sid it sell for? Just curious. I have a 1956 M24 that I'm looking to market and I'm just curious... thanks for your time after the fact...

Goya G-10 Guitar

Hi There!
My Goya G-10 has the serial number 239122, has the original case, and is in great condition. I don't really play it much anymore. Any idea what it might be worth?

Pawn shop goya

I recently came across a red ES 335 style hollowbody Goya at my local pawnshop. It has 1 singlecoil pickup, 1 volume knob and one tone knob. I don't remember the serial no, but it is a 4 digit serial. on the back, it is labeled 'Made in Italy". The guitar is in good shape, the finish is immaculate. There is a small split in the wood on the back which is virtually undetectable. the pawnshop is asking $499. I'm just curious as to the history and value of this guitar. I've never see a Goya before. Any information would be helpful.

Lost Goya

Hey all.
Many decades ago in Austin Texas, USA, as a struggling student at the University of Texas in 1975, I made the life long mistake of pawning my Goya acoustic guitar for book money. I had hoped to retrieve it but as things turned out, I never could.
It was pawned complete with gold felted hardshell case. I'm sure it had a capo, cleaning cloth and numerous Fender thin picks.

I have attempted for years to track it down. Came close three times, once, actually seeing it at a pawn shop on South Congress in Austin. It was my guitar. Left a note for who pawned it but got no response.

Goya ES335

I just acquired a Goya ES335 style (not a Rangemaster) serial # 0570XX. Anyone ever seen one?

I tried one today at a local

I tried one today at a local shop, in Halifax, Canada. I fell in love with it, he's asking $1000 Canadian for it, how much did you pay for yours? I want to buy it but my concern is if I ever had to sell it I would loose my shirt because nobody knows what it is. This one was red, had a switch for coil tapping. It was amazing. Please let me know how much you paid.

Goya m-75 12

I am considering purchasing a Goya 12 string. I have not seen the guitar but the seller tells me it has m-75 12 with a serial number of 3407.
It comes with a hard shell case. My research tells me that it is the Medalist series and dated somewhere in the mid seventies.
What kind of value does this guitar have if it is in good shape? The seller is asking $200 Canadian. I would only be purchasing it to resell.

goya range masters 6 and 12 string

I am trying to figure out which guitar is worth keeping out of the two that I have. I have a 1965 single cut 6 string, with the set tailpiece tremelo. It's a reddish-maroon in color several check marks here and there. I would say a 6.5 out of a 10. Has the original case. My second one is a double cut 1968 12 string orange burst in color. No checking at all. Solid set tail piece. I'm not sure if the treble pot was added or original. Did not come with the original case, just a regular(nice) guitar case. I love them both...since they are from my Era 1950s-1960s. However I am contemplating a swap for a guitar that I just have to own. I just don't know which one to part with. Any suggestions from some of my Goya buddies would be greatly appreciated. Best Regards, Wally.

swedish made n-21 Goya

Got this guitar on ebay. Would like to know the year of its production. The pasted in label has seven serial numbers that look like 3694012 but the 9 and the 0 are just guesses. It's stamped in and the stamp pressed down very good or was not inked good; but I guess the numbers aren't important. But thought the total of seven numbers might tell something about it.

What I can't figure out is the year. How do guitar sellers or collectors go about finding that out? That's what I'm curious about. The owners always seem to know the year.

I don't know if I've used the site right or not; by posting a question I mean.

I have a 1966 TS4 and the truss rod on mine is an 8mm. I use an 8mm - 12 point combination wrench. A 6-point will not swing enough in the channel to adjust the nut.
