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.
