GUEST,Maurice Ever heard of this guitar (103* d) RE: Ever heard of this guitar 22 Jun 06

I have a Levin LT16 from about 1965 which needs a neck reset but sounds great, I got it (used) for £22 about 1968. At that time I think a new Goliath (including hard case) sold here in Ireland for about £55 when the cheapest Martin you could get was about £200. In terms of workmanship and materials Levins were remarkable value, maybe the fact that they were underpriced might have got them in trouble even before the Martin buyout. Don't know if it's true but I read somewhere that the reason they were renamed Goya for the US market was because the distributers thought that Levin sounded Jewish.
