I just found a Carlos acoustic model 249 for sale ($100) another for ($275) and I wanted to know if it was worth it to get it. After a little bit of research they seem to be some of those guitars that just didn't succeed in their time but are gaining a bit of a cult following. Although the information I could find was VERY, VERY limited. So I thought maybe some of you guys might have some first hand experience.

Information I found that I'm looking for verification on:

1) They're hand-made Korean from the 60's and 70's
2) They have a solid Mahogany top
3) They are solid topped but laminated back and sides?

Any other general information you could tell me would be great.
