I own the same model WE-150. Serial N.50344 ( a bit older i suppose ). Same guitar, same woods but something different. Headstock logo is not Martin style (same of this site's W-100 model). Soundhole rosette has same theme of top's edge. Different tuners. Pretty sound and lovly smell of old wood. I saved her 3yr ago from a bad guy :-)

Hi, I got also a Kiso Suzuki WE-150 with Serial 61281. It's a wonderful guitar.

I have the we-150 too! Pretty sure it was made in 1980. It doesn't sound very good plugged in. Anyone know where I can get a new pickup for it? The music store said the metal strip pickup they have won't work in this guitar because of the metal thing that holds the bridge in place
