Don't know much about those, one of hundreds of brands made for export during the 70's I guess. Kluson's would probably get the job done in the way of tuners...

Re: 1978 (MIJ) CORTLEY brand Les Paul copy

Further research has shown that this guitar was made at a japan factory called "TERADA". This same plant also produced several good copies in the 70,s like Aria,cortez,ibanez, and even Grecco. The pickups were touted to me as being "amazing" from the seller, but they are total junk i.m.o. ,lots of feedback (even at low volume) and very microphonic...gotta rip those out a.s.a.p. and am considering putting on a B70 ive got kicking around.
