Goya (Sweden) Classical acoustic in Chicago area for $80

There is a bit of a cult around the Swedish made Goya's based in part on the legendary care and meticulous service of the original Levin guitar factory in Sweden. there is a list of serial number available on line to help date this guitar if you are interested at http://www.whitetreeaz.com/vintage/goya.htm

Martin moved all Goya manufacturing to Japan in 1977 but Goya's were being made in Sweden and sold inthe United Stated by Herschmann and Kustom as early as 1955.

I believe this is a Goya, there is no sticker ... though it does say "Made in Sweden" inside and the rest of my guitars are of the period which Goya was around. I also have a Goya (1958 G-10) listed.

I will let this one go for a low price for two reasons ...
1. The top has a crack in it, one which can be repaired and not even noticeable, but I won't fix it so I will lessen the price. It doesn't effect the playability or tone AT ALL.
2. It has no name, tag, or sticker. It does however have a serial. So lets say you love to research vintage guitars ... and this becomes your treasure. Guess what, you only paid $80 for it!!!

Cash and carry only.
No scammers.
