"Was playing mine (this isn't it) last night and this morning. Love the guitar and the sound.  "

Jim Yates commented on Ted Hechtman's group Goya and Levin Guitar Owners
"The Goliath size is exactly the same as Martin's Dreadnought.  I have placed my Goya M-26 back to back with my Martin D-21 and they match exactly as does a Gibson Hummingbird or Dove."

"A 1991 Guild F45CE - made in Westerly, RI - at Wolfe Guitars in Jupiter, FL... http://www.gbase.com/gear/guild-f-45-ce-1991-blonde Asking $885 with hardshell case...   From Wolfe's website - "A fine example of this popular…"

Ted Hechtman commented on Ted Hechtman's group Goya and Levin Guitar Owners
"It's a yes/no sort of thing. I like the individual saddle but I have had to rebuild them with the super glue baking soda mixture. The "Goliath" size is really fun and I do love the way it sounds. The action is almost too low but the…"

Goya and Levin Guitar Owners

A group for those of us who own and appreciate or don't own and just appreciate Goya and Levin Guitars made in Goteborg Sweden for over 70 years!

Mike Raeburn commented on Ted Hechtman's group Goya and Levin Guitar Owners
"Sold for $113 which is good for a project guitar. I like the individual bridge saddles, provided you keep the top profiled to the correct shape they work very well. The ridge on the top that the string sits on does wear…"

Blackback Gull commented on Ted Hechtman's group Crafter Owners
""Got it for a hundred bucks!!!" Ha, ha, ha...so did I!!! I know it's entry level in the Crafter line (LITE/TRV-SP), but it's a pretty solid entry. The new strings are settling in, and the sound is much cleaner and richer with a…"

Ted Hechtman commented on Ted Hechtman's group Crafter Owners
" I have one of the RF-40s. One of my favorite guitars. I have used it plugged in when performing and unplugged  just fooling around at home. I have about 48 guitars and this is one of my absolute favorites. In fact I'm going upstairs…"

Terry Dobie commented on Ted Hechtman's group Crafter Owners
"I was looking for a travel guitar and found a Crafter Mini RF-40 on Craig's List. Under 36 inches long, Ovation-type back, 25 inch scale and sounds great acoustic and amplified. I had bought my son an A/E Crafter a few years ago and felt it was…"
Feb 22
Blackback Gull commented on Ted Hechtman's group Crafter Owners
"Found this today - just over a year old, 9.5/10 shape - came with a  gig bag, tuner, stand and capo. If this is entry level with Crafter, there must be some fine guitars up the line. Solid sitka top, lam-hog back and sides, convex back,…"
