Levin


This Swedish company was bought out by CF Martin in 1973, but before that, in the 1960s, they produced a range of archtop electrics which were fitted as standard with DeArmond pickups.
 
        

 This Levin guitar Model 315-M2, dated 1962, is fitted with two Model 2000 pickups finished in well-worn gold with black coil formers.  Note the difference in height between the two pickups.  Also note that the knobs are by DeArmond, as used at that time in their tube amps (photo copyright www.vintage-guitars.se).
