Goya T 14 (1967) Serial #355614
Taken from a Harmony Central User Review:
"Made in Sweden in 1967 by the Goya company -- imported by the Levin company. Hagestrom also imported using the Goya name during this time -- but this one is actually a Goya made by Goya.
It has an Alpine Spruce top with polished mahogany back and sides, white double binding, a rosewood fret-board and bridge, and a bone nut and saddle. The tuners are covered and a unique shape I have only ever seen on this guitar and in the Goya catalog.
It is a "Concert Size" which means it is slightly smaller than a standard dreadnaught, but larger than a parlor size. It has a full scale neck.
It is finished with a french polish (shellac) that has mellowed nicely.
A pretty but unassuming little instrument.
Absolutely fabulous sounding guitar. Woody, mellow, throaty. Perfect for either blues, blue-grass, or folk guitar. Sounds like hot-chocolate in front of a raging fire. The closest I have experienced was a Martin from the 1930's.
The sound is its best feature -- what else really matters? Oh -- I know what else matters -- I didn't have to spend thousands on a vintage martin to get the sound. <> I'll probably pass it on just like I pass on all guitars -- gotta keep them circulating ..."

This bench always begs me to photograph it.
