Ted Hechtman replied to Nils Plathe's discussion Got my Levin W36 back! in the group Goya and Levin Guitar Owners

Jim Yates replied to Nils Plathe's discussion Conversion between Goya and Levin model names in the group Goya and Levin Guitar Owners
"Although I know that the Goya M-26 and the Levin LM-26 were essentially the same guitar with different decals, I'm unaware of a conversion chart.   Take a look at this (largely inactive) site: …"

"Thanks Magnus. I assume there is no Goya equivalent to my Levin W36 as this would have been sold by Martin as the D-18 in the US. Seems like there are a few bargains to be made on the Goyas, though."

Magnus Hultin replied to Nils Plathe's discussion Conversion between Goya and Levin model names in the group Goya and Levin Guitar Owners

"I have a friend who owns a Levin LM-26 from the late '60s.  It is the same guitar as my 1958 Goya M-26 with the exceptin of the Levin decal where mine has a Goya.  Mine even has the Ldevin crest as a truss rod cover."

Conversion between Goya and Levin model names

Do any of you know if there is a conversion table between the two brand names ? I understand that the Goya name was used in the US for marketing reasons, thus assuming that the same guitars were sold under different names ?See More
