    I never saw this Cort until a minute ago. Cort takes a few cues from Fano on this one, Duncan designed pickups, pretty reasonable price for the low end models (under $400, up to $800 and change for the top of the line.

    The relicing isn't great, but it looks like the a pretty rockin' guitar.

    I like it, and it's affordable. If I come across one, I'll pick it up and try it out.

    Always wanted to try one of these but I don't think they were ever sold in the U.S. :(

    I'd like to round off the pointy horn on this one.

    I wonder if the Agile's and Cort's are made in the same factory?

    This isn't a new thing, they've been around since the 70's.

    Wouldn't surprise me at all. Damned likely, in fact.

    They've had the ones like that without the relic job and with TV Jones for maybe more than a decade.

    There was also a polemic back in the day about them mistreating Korean workers and moving to Indonesia. Sorry if this breaks forum rules.

    I've been looking in the wrong spot, then. :)

    They're loosely based on some TV Jones models, but the cutaways are different.

    My first thought about resemblance was that of a Fano Alt de Facto. Fano seems to like pairing up Tele guts with an LP Junior type body as well.

    But you can buy 7 of the Corts for what you'd pay for one Fano. :)

    No, they haven't. The model(s) in the Sunset line that you're thinking of have significantly larger, semi-hollow bodies, with a Ric-like soundhole on the bass side.

    The first guitars I saw like this was from Strings N Things Custom Shop in Memphis, TN back in the 70's when Tom Anderson worked there. He later went to Schecter Guitars and then came back to Memhis and started the Memphis Guitar Co. and then St. Blues Guitars which still makes a version of it.

    Don't know when Fano started making them.
