Egmond Guitars

I have a 1960's EGMOND. Pictured here. I wrote it that way because it's written in huge letters on the huge headstock. It is the largest dread I have. How about you people out there? Any EGMOND owners? Any EGMOND stories.

Dave G commented on Ted Hechtman's group Goya and Levin Guitar Owners
"I was interested and inquired about buying this M-26 copy, having owned a couple of late 50's Goya/Levin models.  However, as much as I love the old Goyas, for 3 thousand plus dollars you can really shop wonderful vintage geetars, such as…"

Crafter Owners

A group for owners of a guitar that, to my ear, is one hell of a fine instrument and way underrepresented in the United States. You got one? Tell us about it!!!

Depending on the year,if it has a little age and sounds it's a keeper.They stopped making that neck and headstock for a while and just now are starting to bring them back.
