Hoping someone can help...

I receive an acoustic guitar as a gift several years back. It was not new (I believe it was regifted), anyway the brand says Chicago. The only label anywhere is inside & it says Chicgo made in Korea. Model number FG-8030. I cannot seem to find anything about this brand anywhere. Any help would be much appreciated.

Not heard of it, a lot of large retail outlets used to import a number of guitars and badge them up when they got delivery of them, it happens a lot today, especially the Chinese made guitars, maybe this happened to yours?
Thats not to say you have a bad guitar, a lot of the Korean guitars are excellent and you may find one factory making loads of different branded guitars.

Did you buy the guitar in America? CMI (Chicago Musical Instruments) was a large conglomerate that owned Gibson. In the 1990s, they were having electrics made in Korea with a CMI logo on the headstock. For an acoustic, they may have thought "Chicago" sounded more classy. Just a semi-ed guess.
