McCormic guitars??

Hi,

can anybody shed a light on me concerning this MIJ brand?
I've been told they have produced LP copies and other Gibson models (ES-175) in the late '70s / early '80s ...

Thanks in advance ...

Problem is that said females tend to go for Fender designs most of the time (in my experience...) maybe due to ergonomics, weight, recognition and price issues.

Just how would this work and just how loud could this thing go if it can hook up to two external cabs?!
