Goya 109

1966 Goya guitar catalogue page 4

Goya 1966 guitar catalogue. Page 4. Details of three members of the semi-acoustic Goya Rangemaster series, models: 105, 107 and 109, with the 109B (blonde finish) pictured. The name Rangemaster relates to the wide tonal range of the pickups; each consists of two separate coils covering two strings only. These guitars were made in Italy by accordian manufacturers Polverini, then badged Goya. The main difference between these three guitars was the body shape: the 105 having a single Venetian cutaway (see next page), the 107 a single Florentine cutaway, and the 109 a double Florentine cutaway. Only the 109B was available with blonde finish, and this had a maple front back and sides, rather than the mahogany of all other finishes.

The January 1966 US list price for either the blonde or sunburst finished model was $399. This was a significant amount; actually $9 more than the very well-regarded Gibson ES-175D.

There were more than one company using the name Goya - Italian (Polverini) Goyas as in this catalogue, Swedish Levin-made Goyas (for export), Japanese-made Goyas (I've seen a nice ES-175 copy) and German-made low-end acoustic Goyas. I suspect your 335 copy is a nicely-made Japanese Goya - it can all get a bit confusing. The Italian Goya catalogue as above DOESN'T show the very tasty Kessel type thinline double-cut they made WITHOUT all the banks of buttons & switches - it probably sounds great.....
