Vintage Levin guitars - 1913 and 1936!!

Postby bottleneckjohn » Sat Sep 24, 2011 5:10 pm

Hey guys!

Today my living room turned into a film studio, LoL! There's going to be a film made about a Swedish guitar brand called Levin(Goya in the US), some of my guitars will appear in the film, and I was interviewed as well.. Kinda nervous but big fun!

Here's a clip, a jam after the film stuff was done..


I like these guitars, they were the "Gibson" of Europe in a way... :D

Yes, it is. I've been meaning since 1997 to write a book or make some kind of film about this Swedish maker of stringed instruments.
I never had the time to make it happen so I'm thrilled that it's finally coming together!!! :)

I have a big collection of these Levin guitars, banjo's and mandolins. It's a good thing that people can know more about this brand, they built some really, really fine instruments between 1900 - 1978..
