IVE A CORTEZ J6000 ACOUSTIC MADE IN 1969-1970 ERA,,ITS A MARTIN D45 CLONE....ITS VIRTUALLY AN EXACT COPY..WITH ALL THE ABALONS DRESSED FRET BOARD ETC, AND THE WOODS ARE SUPERB WITH A SOLID SPRUCE TOP, SOLID BRAZILIAN ROSEWOOD BACK AND SIDES WITH A 3 PIECE BACK, THE CENTRE PIECE BEING A MAPLE INLAY.

IVE LOOKED AT THIS GUITAR FROM EVERY ANGLE CANT FIND A FAULT IN IT ITS ROCK SOLID,THE WOODS ARE BEAUTIFUL AND WARM LOOKING.........

I THINK IT WAS A LAWSUIT MODEL AS ITS VIRTUALLY AN EXACT COPY!

IM NOT AN EXPERT PLAYER JUST STRUMMING BOB DYLAN AND SOME FINGER PICKIN JOHNNY CASH STUFF,AND GOSPEL ........I PUT MARTIN LIGHTS ON IT AND THE PROJECTION IS EXCELLENT

I MIGHT TRY MEDIUMS NEXT TIME JUST TO COMPARE THE TONE..ANY ADVICE WELCOME!

 

 

 

IVE NEVER SEEN ANOTHER ONE HAS ANYBODY ANY INFO ON HOW MANY WHERE MADE? OR ANYTHING ELSE ABOUT THIS MODEL? ALTHOUGH I SAW ONE IN A PHOTO BACK IN THE 70S

I WILL TRY TO POST A PHOTO

That's a really cool guitar. How long have you had it?

 

hi and thanks for your interest,,i only bought it last year from a private collector of guitars, he wanted 800 dollars no case with it,,when i went

to his house to look at it we talked a while and he let me have it for 600

im sure i got a bargin, as i tried a couple of new guitars and a martin but

they wernt just as good as this in my opion..offcourse being a 37 year old guitar in 9.7 condition it would sound better as it has the best woods.....

its a martin d45 clone and ive only ever saw 2 in 30 years...one in a photo..

extremly well made.

 

cheers boss:thu:

OK. Here's a great article that will tell you everything you need to know. It turns out that what you have is a precursor to a Cort.

I have that exact same guitar. I've not seen many either. Mine was given to me by my office manager. She bought it new when she was a teenager, never learned to play so she gave it to me when she found out I played. Actually it cost me a few songs, she wanted to hear me play it to make sure it was going to a good home. Its one nice guitar.

I was going to say the Cortez was built by the same people as Cort, at least distributed by the same people. I had read about Westheimer before and they have had guitars built by lots of people.

 

Baba's post of the Westheimer article confirmed my suspicions.

 

However I was a bit surprised when I read the article. Though it is about guitars and not geography, you would think that in the interest of credibility the author would try to be accurate on all points.

 

Then I read, "Then, in
