Re: Goya model M22 circa 1958

Harry,

What do You want to know?
M22 was one of the first Goya branded steelstring flattops made by Levin for the US market. I think it was introduced 1957 or 58. In 1964 or 65 it changed name to N-22, and had somewhat more radius on the fretboard, and the fretboard dots adjusted towards the bass side. in 1969 it changed again, to "model 161", which had a new design of the headpiece and the pickguard. I think it was discontinued after 1973, when Martin bought the Levin company.

The spec of the guitar is basically:
- Concert size
- Back and sides of birch
- top of spruce
- mahogany neck
- Rosewood fretboard
- Adjustable trussrod
- Bolt on neck
