All I see is the very edge of a bluish stratish guitar.

I sent you a PM earlier. Check your inbox. You can also set your preferences so you get a popup when you have new PMs.

That's all I see as well; a stratty-looking upper bout line but the headstock is a new one to me!!

That mahogany 790 has a real Electra Workingman vibe going on.... I like it!!

Here is the posting that caught my eye and brought it home to me.
Yes the 790 is a really nice guitar.
I cannot get enough of playing that one.
Any suggestions on which of the bigger fret wire/style I could go with when it comes time to redo them?

Cot did make some decent guitars. Had two explorers and an LP. The LP was fairly nice.

Um, that upper horn. :no: :blink: :D

Here's the Cort LP. Technically I didn't "have" it, but had it for a while. It was actually Doc's guitar. It came to me a shell poorly sanded, even to the bare wood in places. It played like butter when I was finished.
