Mako was a brand created by Kaman Music Corporation around 1980. Initially, their guitars were produced almost exclusively by Samick, and consisted largely of re-branded Hondo models. Later models were produced by Cort, which can be identified by having "Made in Korea" ink-stamped in gold on the back of the headstock.
