Goya GG-45 1971-'72

Hello — I'm new here and this is my first time posting. Love the forum! and I just had a quick question, maybe not terribly simple, but hopefully the answer will be, and since it's about an old acoustic, I thought an acoustic guitar forum would be a good place to ask.Anyway. I recently came into possession of a nylon-stringed Goya GG-45 in Excellent condition. The serial number is 2189, and from my research dates to 1971-'72. I wanted to know the value of it, but I keep finding wildly different…See More

Day 16: The Banjo Killer slays again!

This story has a happy ending, folks, and I'll start with it. After working for three weeks to painstakingly restore Bryan Sutton's flood damaged Banjo Killer, Shin Ichikawa finally got to test drive it today!

Day 15: The end is near. I can smell it.

Shin Ichikawa and I started the day by fitting and glueing the back binding. Last night's fitting of the top binding was tedious, but the tricks we learned made the fit of back binding go smothly.
