This Epiphone Cortez was made by Gibson in the USA in 1962. The Cortez model is the same as the LG-2 and B-25 - a smaller bodied acoustic that is x-braced. This guitar is in very nice shape. There is normal play wear but no damage. The bridge has been changed which is a tonal upgrade from the original adjustable bridge. The guitar has been pro-setup and plays great. It comes with a non original chip board case.
