Re: Cortez Electric

Around 1973, Cortez guitars factory in Japan was taken over by the former US importrs of Teisco guitars.....They made predominantly acoustic copies and graduated onto copies of well known American guitars....around 1978 they were also producing through neck copies (selling and rebranding them to other companies such as Arbor, Kay and Kawai before they left the factory.
Cort guitars (USA owned and designed) reermerged in a brand new Korean factory facility in 1980 and starting large scale production from that point.
