Levin guitar

Posted by Gene on Fri, 12/12/08 - 19:01:24.

My Levin guitar was purchased in Europe in 1963. It is a model 111 with serial number 434021 (I think; it is a little hard to read). Is there a cross-walk with the Goya label (as marketed in the US); that is, what is the Goya equivalent of a Levin model 111? I was offered $3500 for the instrument by a lutist some years ago.

Serial number 3315630 model number 115. I have owned it since I was 13! A very long time, is this a 55 or 56? It had some work done to the bottom, has been re-glued by professional but obviously has some aesthetic issues so the value isn't there anymore but sounds fantastic!
Thanks

Re: Levin guitar

The equivalent of Levin 111 is Goya G-30. Your serial no dates it to 1963.

I have followed Goya auctions on Ebay for some years now and would say that a G-30 normally goes for 500 - 1300 $.

My experience however is that Levin branded instruments reaches higher prices than their Goya equivalents.

Re: Levin guitar

Steve,

Check out the Levin Catalog page at goyaguitars.tripod.com

Specifically

http://goyaguitars.tripod.com/levin_catalog68_9.htm

It is in Swedish, but the 123 is a steelstring guitar, with alpspruce in the top and birch in sides and bottom. The scale is 630 mm. (pretty close to what is normally referred to as short scale)
