Re: Cortez Acoustic Guitars

: : I am trying to obtain info about Cortez acoustic guitars.
: : Any info would be appreciated.

: I also own a Cortez acoustic six string guitar I picked up used several years ago. I use it daily, and love its sound.
: I also have never been able to find info on it, but I've
: had several people offer me trades and cash for it. Let me
: know if you find info or a rich collector!!

Hi, I bought a used Cortez in 1989 as well and have been puzzled.
I was drooling at the Gibson ES 335 site and decided to do a search
on the Cortez and found this group and a page stating that the Cortez
guitars were

"Cortez it turns out is the brand name that Cort used before it used Cort.
It's all laminated wood, but it's stood up well over the years."
( http://www.users.qwest.net/~fhudson/acoustics.htm )

I have been staring at mine and I swear the grain goes all the way through,
does anyone know if Cortez made solid top guitars? Please send to
mailto:david@kikaz.com
with replies as I will probably never be here again. I have been
dying to learn more about this guitar and it's estimated worth.
It has abelone(?) type inlays all around the edges of the top and
in place of the dots.

Anyone with more info (Beyond the other replies here) would
be well received. It is upstairs so I do not know the model number,
but it has a made in japan sticker on it.

Cheers,

Dave

I'm looking for a saddle for the model J-6000-12
If you could find it, please e-mail me back.

Thank you

Re: Cortez Acoustic Guitars

I have a Cortez J-6000, Im just now finding out about this guitar... I have some history info about it, but thats it.

Re: Cortez Acoustic Guitars

I have a Cortez J6000, I got it in Illinois in 1973. It's been a wonderful, durable guitar. With fresh strings, it sounds great. The action is a bit high, but it doesn't buzz! Beautiful woodwork and trim. I'll have it the rest of my life.

Re: Cortez Acoustic Guitars

I own one from about 1974 that is a knock off of a Gibson Dove. I sought some info about the manufacturer. I wanted a left handed pick guard to convert it to lefty following an accident. I've since taken up the Dobro. I found a luthier named Paul Hostetter and although he had a low opinion of my beloved Cortez he was gracious to tell me that it was probably Koreon made but that was about all he could tell me. I may still try to convert mine. If you find any more let me know.

Kamouraska " Collection" Series

How are you all?
I have been looking all over the place for additional information on this classical guitar. Has certificate with serial number,
and is a " hand made classical". Supposedly, the maker named on cert. was father of small company in Quebec. Mine
was the last one made before company turned over to sons - went bankrupt.
Am looking for history, and present value. If any of you can give me any leads, appreciate it in advance.

Re: Kamouraska " Collection" Series

Hi Mike,

In the early years of the '80, I worked in La Patrie Qc. at the Unisonic guitar shop where your guitar was made. There were three series of "Collection" guitars built at the time.

The shop was never given to "sons", but was founded by ex-rep of Norman guitars and the son of owner of the above!
After the closing of Unisonic inc. The ex-rep. and now sole owner of the shop,bought Norman guitars' facilities in the village and started up on a new label: Godin...

Depending which model the price was at the time something near $250/350,can

Hi, I'm collecting any info on the guitar making history in the Eastern townships (Quebec)
Following Jay-Jay's comment
Unisonic were also making Lys acoustic guitar.
Kamouraska and Lys were registered trade marks in 1980 by Unisonic
I think Unisonic went down the drain but M.Godin bought back the facilities
and founded Lasido-Guitabec. They redesign Lys to become the Seagull line and
Kamouraska became without much modification, the La Patrie line of classical
They are top notch low end guitar in my opinion
Can you share serial no/model and pictures?

I just bought this guitar. Mine was made in 1979, I love it. Paid $450 cdn for it and figured it was a pretty good deal for an excellent 12 string. My best guesstimate put the value about 600-800 from what I have read.

i'd give you $2000 for it if you are interested. thanks

Re: gibson firebird VII non reverse body with hard acoustic case

Are you interested in selling it? I am looking for a nice firebird. Is the one you have the type that Johnny Winter Plays?
Dean

Re: gibson firebird VII non reverse body with hard acoustic case

it could be worth two maybe three thousand pounds
depending on its condition and serial number....
£££££££££££££££££££££££££!!!!!!!!!

Re: gibson firebird VII non reverse body with hard acoustic case

Sorry but the non-reverse models are not worth
the same price as the reverse models.

This is because the non-reverse models are not
hotly sought after by collectors.

It's still worth a couple of grand maybe 1800$ US
if in mint or near mint condition.
