Bob Marley’s Levin W36

This guitar can be seen in a few well-known photos of Bob Marley, one of which is often used for poster prints. The exact date of this photo is unknown, so if you have any information, please leave a comment.

The exact model of the guitar is unknown because there’s no visible branding on the headstock. However, based on the headstock shape, it’s likely a Levin brand guitar. Levin guitars from the 1970s usually had oval metal plate logos on the headstock, and if you look at the photo below, it looks like there’s a lighter-colored oval-shaped area just where the logo should be.
