  • Price:$135000.00

As seen in the 2011 issue of the July / Aug / Sept edition of Guitar Aficionado magazine - Find section.  Levin Guitar previously owned by Fred Guy of the Duke Ellington band - the 1940's era.  This is also the same guitar that Django Reinhardt is holding in the picture above when he was in New York City, backstage with the Duke Ellington Orchestra in 1946, and on the cover of Acoustic Guitar Magazine, Feb 1996 edition.  The guitar was given to me by Fred Guy's ex-wife Dorothy Guy Lynch over 25 years ago.  If you need additional information regarding the authenticity of the guitar, please forward me your email and I will send you the full story via PDF file.  The Levin guitar is in its original case, and the guitar itself has some small cracks in it.  If you love Jazz, and want to own a piece of jazz history, this is a rare opportunity for the serious guitar collector.  This is the real deal.  Only serious inquiries only... If you want to view the guitar, I will be glad to set up a time to do so (the guitar is being stored off premises in a secured site so arrangements will need to be made in advance).  Payment can be via cash, check, money order, transfer, or paypal.  I keep relisting this guitar because I received many responses that provide additional information about the guitar - Thanks!   ALSO - Please check out the guitar in the July / Aug 2011 edition of Guitar Aficionado magazine at http://avcssguitarbooks.com/content/images/LevinGuitar/levin%20in%20magazine%2010001.pdf
