Levin Vintage Model 119 1950's


Levin was founded in 1900 by brothers Carl August and August Martin Levin in Gothenburg, Sweden. They began by making stringed instruments, including guitars.

Over the decades, Levin became one of the most respected guitar brands in Europe as their acoustic guitars were renowned for their build quality and sound.

Levin has been at the forefront of innovation in guitar design and mass manufacturing processes.

In addition, Levin also worked together with other major guitar brands, such as Martin and Framus, to produce special models.
