1966 Goya Electric Guitars catalogue
1966 Goya Electric Guitars catalogue, Goya was well-known for it's acoustic guitars, produced by Levin in Sweden; but in the mid 1960s they added a number of Italian-built electric guitars and basses. Semi-acoustic models such as the 105, 107 and 109 Rangemaster guitars and Panther II bass were made by Polverini, whilst solid body models 116 and 118 were made by Galanti. These were well-built good quality instruments, but perhaps too expensive to sell in large numbers.
1965 Vox Ace electric guitar
1965 Vox Ace electric guitar The Vox Ace was one of the early UK-designed Vox guitars produced by JMI in Dartford, Kent. It had been in production since at least 1962, but was redesigned for late 1963 with a more current look and a higher quality feel. The pickups were upgraded, as was the body; it was now thicker and made of solid wood. Despite this the guitar was now actually lighter in weight, due to a shorter overall length. Have a closer look at a sunburst-finished Vox Ace from 1965.

have acsess to 60s model 822 kent bass all original some damage to the face of the body from years of humidity, Florida, although it was stored in a closet. my question from a purely financial interest is should i buy it and have it reconditioned to keep or sell as a valuable collectable or would i be better off to pass it up?
Daniel Coll Comment left 30th April 2013 05:05:32
I have a 60's (??) Candelas delgado Bros guitar. Dreadnought body with classical fret board. Wrote to delgodo bros and they think it may be one of five made for Jose feliciano. Would love to have an honest appraisal on it. It may well be a collectors piece.

Hi---DO you have any info on the Washburns 198-1983, especially the SB-40? Thanks, Mark Keller Groveport, OH

Neale: I know of several Ampeg 'Baby' stand-up basses for sale here in the USA, but the prices are high, upwards of $2,500.00 USD for ones in nice condition which include the original Stand and carrying bag. Shipping to UK would add another chunk of cost to the price not to mention when it gets there, you will get hit with a VAT. But if you have the means, then contact me and I will get you one. I have sold and shipped Jaguar car parts to friends in the UK and AU and sold a Gibson bass to a fellow in Norway.
