Here is a very clean example of a vintage GOYA folk guitar, model F-19. It was made in Sweden in 1963 based on the following: Serial number and the fact that the label says New York 10 rather than the NY zip code as zip codes were not introduced to the USA until July 1, 1963. Also, this guitar was introduced in 1961 with a pickguard and by 1962, the pickguard was not offered on it. In 1963, they went to a slotted headstock.

Here is a description on this style of guitars based on the Wikipedia Goya page: >>>"In the early 1960s, a line of "folk guitars were launched with wide flat fretboards similar to those on nylon string guitars but fitted with steel strings. These instruments were developed partly in collaboration with American folk-singer Oscar Brand. Some details on this specific guitar: 1. It has been restrung with D'Addario J-40 silk & steel strings.

I believe it could also function fine if restrung with any decent ball end classical strings 2. The neck is right about 1 15/16 width and the body is about the same size as a classical guitar. The action seems to be a bit high causing the #6 G string to be a bit high causing the notes on that string to be a bit sharp when fretted.

Very little if any fret buzz and very little if any fret wear. The seam on the bottom has lifted but is not loose or getting worse (see photo). A couple of small scratches on the back (see photo).

Neck joint is secure as well as the bridge joint. The #1 E string bridge pin is a new replacement 8.

The #3 G string tuning machine is very tight to turn but still moves okay. Has a new set of D'Addario J-40 Silk & Steel strings on it but it would probably a fine instrument with a set of ball end nylon strings. Includes the original, very battered chipboard case which really isn't too functional as a few of the latches and hinges are missing or broken along with missing pieces of the cardboard lip.
