So I bought the guitar in the video down there by accident. By that I mean that I saw it on Ebay and wondered how much people thought it would be worth being a not really Goya. So I put up 75 bucks. And no one else put up any more than that. Now I'm guessing it was because the listing said that there was a bridge pin broken and stuck in the bridge. Maybe. I got it. It arrived today and it took me ten minutes to drill the thing out. The strings were really old and dirty and I put a set of Martin 12's 10 on the high E. Before that I oiled the fret board and cleaned out the inside and waxed the whole thing. It sounds really great. Now I don't want you to think I'm getting carried away. You know I have too many guitar (I suppose that's true). I have three other 12's. An EKO. A Guild and a real Swedish Goya. This equals them. Even challenges the Guild. I believe it is a solid top. I did that oil the inside of the soundhole thing and it seems that grain is very visible. So this quite a guitar. It isn't really a Goya buy it does no disrespect to the name.

I had been watching a Goya Guitar on Ebay. I got a note from Ebay saying that they had found a similar item for me as the one I was looking at sold.

I had a Fishman sound hole pick-up installed in my '58 Goya M-26 for my birthday.  Sounds great.
