Mike Raeburn commented on Ted Hechtman's group Goya and Levin Guitar Owners
"Hi Ted, Glad you like it! I found it fascinating, it certainly laid to rest many of the myths that had grown up around the Martin take over. The facts about the early years were also very illuminating. I would recommend it to any Levin or Goya owner…"
