Been asked to post some vintage Levin stuff, I will do that now and then, I have a bunch of these Swedish made instruments..  :D

Here's a 1907 Levin from my collection, awesome tonewoods and excellent tone!



Still going strong after a 100 years..!!

That is one fine looking little guitar BJ! Can't believe the figure in that wood from '07, seems like wild figured wood is more of a contemporary taste. Or maybe I just need to find me some higher end "old" guitars!  ;D

Do you know what kind of wood it is?

Hey!

Yes, it's extremely flamey!!
Levin used this wood in some of their finest guitars, it's actually flame birch that looks like this, truly wonderful!
A bit like maple in tone but wilder looks, haha!
