Cort Guitars was founded in 1960 as a piano‑focussed business, but began making guitars (for other companies) in 1973. If you’ve owned a Squire, a G&L Tribute or an Ibanez, there’s a good chance you’ve had a Cort-built instrument.

The Cort marque first appeared on a headstock in the early ‘80s, and the company quickly established itself as a builder of affordable, quality instruments. In fact, their reputation for high-quality guitars at the right price has attracted boutique guitar builders looking to turn their designs into reality through limited production runs.
