Delightful mid-60s Swedish made Goya (Levin) solid mahogany N 21 grand concert flat top. Excellent condition cosmetically; just one scratch across the front that shows in the pics. A tight crack on the back extending up from the bottom of the guitar. Lightly cleated, and not going anywhere. Old neck reset. Could have been done a little cleaner (you can see some glue along the joint), but it's solid. A crack on each side of fretboard extension, but fortunately the neck never seemed to have moved forward. I cleated the top between the first brace and neck block, so it's solid and stable now. Stay away from the heavy string gauges, which is probably how the trouble started in the first place. Slight forward rotation to the bridge, but not enough to lift the strings. Top is almost flat. That's all good, because Goyas are lightly built and often show evidence of serious overstringing. This one isn't bad at all. BTW, the saddle rout was rather worn, so I filled and re-did it. Work is pretty much invisible. Nice tone. Not a bottom-end cannon, but has clear and crisp tone that is great for finger picking. Also has a pleasant jangly chime for strummed chords. Swedish Goyas are excellent instruments in every way - just go easy on the string tension. Non-original chipboard case.

Real charges only - no added materials or handling charges. All guitars insured for full value. I will use the least expensive shipping available, although this may be slow in some circumstances (e.g. parcel post). Please let me know if you desire a faster, albeit more, expensive service. Please allow 2 - 4 days of time to prepare and pack your guitar IN ADDITION to the actual shipping transit.

NO buyer's remorse PLEASE! Damage or loss in shipping = insurance claim (with which I will be glad to assist you). At my discretion, a disatistfied buyer may return a guitar (with a thorough explanation) for a full refund of purchase price but not of shipping. I'd rather begrudgingly take back a guitar than truly disappoint a customer. If, however, I have ever made a serious error in identification/originality/damage etc. that negatively affects a guitar's value, then a full refund including shipping will be given. PLEASE file any return claims ASAP - seven days at most.
