Hi guys and gals, I usually post in EG but recently picked up this 70's (78?) Cortez J200 (Gibson SJ200 copy), and am trying to find as much info on this guitar line as I can. I've done a lot of internet searching and have come up with very limited resources other than the fact that this was the original line of Cort guitars and was started in Japan before being eventually moved to Korea in the 80's. I will say the build quality, playability, and tone are amazing and easily worth the $250 I gave for it. If others are out there that can put me on a path to finding info on this original line of guitars, I'd be most appreciative. I'm very intrigued as to how many other great offerings they produced and might still be out there. I have heard that they made a very close replica of a Martin D-28 back in the day. Anyway, I'd be very grateful for any help. Here's a few pics:
No announcement yet.
Anybody have info on Cortez guitars?
