Offered for sale:
Used c1958 Goya G10 classical guitar serial number 123649. "Made by A.B. Herman Carlson Levin, Gothenburg, Sweden."
This guitar is in fair condition, there are marks and nicks abounding, the top has cracks that have been repaired and the upper bout treble side has significant crack repairs. All repairs were done professionally and are stable.
Goya guitars were handmade in Sweden with all solid wood construction. 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. Many of the steel-string Levin-made Goyas feature bolt-on necks, however the classicals have dovetailed joints. These guitars are a quality yet simple build, of note the Levin/Goya classicals utilize aluminum-reinforced necks which are thin and very playable compared to your average classical.
This guitar has a very focused tone, clear with good bass response. Much more depth and nuances that similarly price Pacific Rim instruments.
The G-10 is an interesting, well-made European classical for a very reasonable price.
Case not included. Cases and gig bags available separately.

*Please note: we do our best giving descriptions of used pieces. We have found it impossible to describe every mark on an instrument or amp that is not in the "mint" category. Also, what's important to you may not be important to someone else. For example, you may say, "I don't care what it looks like as long as it plays or sounds well." Another person may say, "Body cosmetics are very important to me so tell me about every scratch, nick and blemish." So, please ask the questions that are most important to you. If you ask they will be answered. They are free and there's no limit. Additional photos can also be made available.
