Hey everyone. Picked up this beauty today - not much history on Cortez guitars and I've never seen one here in Canada until today - they are almost certain Matsumoku from what I have read. I'm guessing late 70's. Almost 10lbs - solid mahogany body for sure. Original tuners. Someone swapped out the original pups for Epiphone (not sure what brand) but they sound pretty aggressive. You can feel the chords through your fingers and sounds awesome through my JMP! Love the burnt orange colour - shows the grain really well! Lots of discolouration in the binding as well! MOP Cortez name and diamond inlay.
