yeah .. lol  ..  funny  ,  when you  replied  ,, i  figured  you just typed    it   in   wrong  and meant  korea was  better   etc  ,,.

but  yeah  ..  the   korean  stuff  was always a step   better .. in  most cases  still is today  .

still  ,  there's something to  be said  for  those    old   jap   guitars and their  vintage     pickup sound    that    modern  guitars  cant seem  to  duplicate  .  combine that  with  its   rareity , and   recent   boom  in  vintage  jap  guitars  .. and you  got  a keeper  ;-)

found this-   " Emperador was the entry level brand to the Cort line of Westheimer Musical Instruments of Chicago, IL (source: Harmony Central ). Made from 1966 to 1992, these were originally Japanese-made guitars in the 1960's by the Kasuga Company. Later models were made in Korea."from what i  hear the   japan models  were ;lower quality  , and  the  later korean models were  better  ,  as  in  most    cases  with korean    guits  . ps  . The Beach Boys' Carl Wilson, played an Emperador guitar at one time.
