Re: Goya GG 17 #51795

I would say there is no significant difference in the appearance of the guitar itself, it is only another model marking. Initially the model was called G-17, and I think it was when the distribution was overtaken by amp manufacturer Kustom Electric in 1969/70 the models changed to GG. The equivalent Levin model was LG-17 ("Levin Guitar model 17"...) and it may have been an adaption to this.

Your Guitar, based on the number, is from the Dude era, 1972 - 1976, but it is possible that these instruments were manufactured in the Levin factory during the Kustom era, and overtaken by Dude after the Kustom bankrupcy.

The GG-17 was Alp spruce solid top, Solid mahogany sides and bottom, 3 piece Rosewood neck (maple centerpiece). The GG-17 was gloss polished whereas the LG-17 was matte.
