1966 Levin-made Goya G-10 Classical Guitar



This Levin-made (from Sweden) Goya G-10 is a customer repair and like the many I've worked on in the past, it's a reliable, great-playing, great-sounding nylon-strung guitar that's more of a folk guitar than a true classical. The owner had me install a K&K pickup (which sounds excellent in it) and I also gave it a neck reset, fret level/dress, some seam repairs, and some brace repairs, too.

The G-10 models have solid spruce tops over solid birch back and sides. The bridge and fretboard are rosewood and the neck is mahogany. A lot of the steel-string Levin-made Goyas have bolt-on necks, but the classicals all have dovetailed ones instead. Aside from the quality (and simple) build, the best thing about Levin/Goya classicals are their aluminum-reinforced necks which are thin (front to back) which makes them super-playable compared to your average classical from the same time (or even now).



This instrument is 100% original and crack-free.
