Up for sale, a 1960s Goya Model GG-17 Classical guitar.  These instruments were solidly made in Sweden by Levin for export to the USA and sold via the Hershmann Musical Instrument Company in New York.  This guitar is an excellent project for a tech or aspiring luthier as it currently has some issues that need addressing to get it playing properly.  While you can surely strum a few chords on the guitar as it sits, there are a few cracks across the treble side of the lower bout (photo #8), and the top is bowing up behind the bridge, probably due to some loose internal bracing.

The action at the 12th fret can be seen in photos 10 and 11, with a hair over 3/16" clearance on the bass side and an 1/8" on the treble side.  The tuners still work well and the neck feels great with a gloss finish and no cracks except for on the body.  The interior label is in great shape too.  This vintage guitar is in need of a loving home for restoration!

This instrument is sold as-is, with no implied warranty as a project for a luthier with the proper experience.  No returns.  This auction starts at $0.01, so please bid accordingly!
