I have a Kiso Grand Suzuki "Hillbilly," Serial 60711. Beautiful Brasilian Rosewood, 3-piece back and sides. Probably very few produced, since no information has thus far been found.
Great, warm sound - a joy to play.
Please post if you have any infos.
Thanks!
Tom

I have a Kiso Suzuki guitar with this label. It says "MOdel 70" and has the serial number "28268" printed on it.
Bought it for 900 yen at a local second hand shop in Shinjuku last winter (nov 2012). One of the tuning screws was broken, and it had no strings, which was probably why it was so cheap.
But I managed to get it into working condition and ought a new set of strings for it and it sounds great!
I am glad to have stumbled upon such a nice guitar for such a good price.

I have a Kiso Suzuki Violin Co. LDT Japan Model No. 70

I don't have the serial number, nor can I find one. I believe it is somewhere between the 60's and 70's. But not sure.

My 10 year old daughter was given the same guitar with the same exact label, but Model no. 60 from her Grandmother who is the original owner. It was bought for her brand new as a gift from my father-in-law sometime in the 70's. But they can not remember the exact year.

It is a great sounding guitar and my daughter has been taken lessons with it. Grandma is thrilled to see her granddaughter playing her vintage guitar.

It is not an expensive guitar, you can still get them easy enough for around $100 to $350, but it is priceless to us.

I have a K-100 Classical. I've not found one on the net. It's fat for a classical. I think the year made might be late 60's?

Anyone else know about the K-100??

I have a Suzuki Model 80 guitar in almost perfect condition. I inherited it almost 40 years ago and it has been in the case ever since. My friend used it for about 6 months and gave up trying to learn to play. It is a rosewood and spruce guitar. Has the original strings and is in almost perfect condition. No dings or scratches. There is one on e bay exactly like it for $699.00. It has the same model number, same inside label same wood on body and deck. I have no idea if that is a good price or not but I am thinking of selling the one I have. If someone could share some more info about this guitar, I would very much appreciate it.

Kiso Suzuki Mod 80 Rosewood Spruce Classical Acoustic Guitar. I inherited this guitar about 40 years ago from my friend who used it for 6 months. There are no dings or scratches at all. There is one currently on e bay listed at $699.00 as a buy now product--no auction. My guitar has the same interior label, same rosewood sides and spruce top. I would like to know roughly what the guitar is worth as the one on eBay has a long sale date. I would be interested in selling the one I have but need some more information.

Where on or in the guitar is the serial number to be found?

On the label inside the guitar. If you look through the hole it should be right there. Mine
has the serial number and model number on the same label.
