"Don't forget the last of the line of Levins and Goyas after the Martin takeover were produced in the far east. I have one of their classical guitars, a Levin LG8 made in Japan in 1979, No. L91332. It's ok quality wise and sounds…"

"Guild has been tossed around from one company to another. The logo is the same. That's all. Now Cordoba owns the name."

Jim Yates commented on Ted Hechtman's group Goya and Levin Guitar Owners
"It's very similar to the Washburn name being used and confusing folks.  The same with Vega banjos.  Same name, but entirely different companies."

"Let us not be too ready to condemn, the guitars may well be made in Europe in a small high tech factory from locally sourced European soundboard woods. In which case, if they have followed the original designs and specifications, then the guitars…"

"I totally agree with Ted... It is a little disappointing that the Levin name is being used on Chinese made guitars in the modern era."

Ted Hechtman commented on Ted Hechtman's group Goya and Levin Guitar Owners
"This is how I feel. First I am sure they are decent if not splendid guitars. But just because the name and logo are the same doesn't mean they are actually "Levin" guitars. In the same way those Martin "Goyas" are not really…"

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.
