I have a circa 1964 Goya F-27 in great shape. Always used nylon strings. Any idea what it would sell for these days?
Also, I am tempted to try some steel strings since it was designed for steel. Wonder if it will sound a lot better.

Thats a nice guitar you have! And it will definately sound totally different and absolutely better with a light (012-054) set of steelstrings. Nylonstrings just can´t make it any justice because of the loss of stringforce and capability to make the soundboard to vibrate as it should.

Good luck!

I wonder how many in the throng still have Goyas out there? I still miss my old G-10 from around 1960; lost in a fire years ago. They might have been one of the best value brands ever.

couldn't agree more TJ, I never owned one sadly but lots of friends did and I loved the sound ... compared to my Martin in sound I think only one heck of a lot cheaper at the time

My first guitar was a Goya M-26 that I bought in 1960 for $25 Cdn. I sold it when the action started getting higher, not realizing that it could be fixed. About ten years ago I found another 1958 M-26 which I payed a bit more than $75 for, but it was still very reasonable. I use it almost as much as my 1962 Martin D-21. The Swedish Goyas are great - one of the first acoustics with bolt on necks.

Both Allan Fraser of Fraser& Debolt and Robin Wiliiams of the Incredible String Band played Goya Goliath (dreadnought) guitars.
