mrdux Cordova Guitars (2) Cordova Guitars 09 Mar 08

While cleaning the basement storage area -- and I know there's a below-the-line thread on just that topic -- I came across my younger brother's old guitar. It's a Cordova 12-string, Model 492. The label identifies it as being made in West Germany and distributed by David Wexler and Co., in Chicago. My guess is that it is of mid-60s vintage. It looks to be in pretty decent condition, just a few cosmetic dings (dog-related, I suspect). Does anyone have any info about these guitars? Is this anything of particular monetary value? (I asked my brother about it and he hasn't a clue -- he reminded me that he gave it to me twenty-five years ago because it was no fun to play and at the time I didn't know any better -- and the David Wexler Co. hasn't responded yet.)
