I inherited mine from my Dad. It rivals several Martin dreadnaughts that friends own in terms of tone and projection. I get compliments on it all the time. One of my favorite guitars ever, definitely.

I have recently aquired a Kizo-Suzuki Model # W180. I am very sure that it is a copy of a Martin D-35. I have been a guitar player and luthier for over 35 years and know a well made guitar when I see it. Can anyone Give me a opinion on my comments about the W-180. Thanks

I have the same guitar, purchase new between 71 and 73 (I don't remember, I was 12 to 14yo) for a value of 1000 to 1100 French francs at this date (150-160 Euros... to be reevaluated after more than 30 years !!!)
I had the idea to change recently, but did not find a good guitar enouth except high-end guitars at a too much high price I was ready to pay for (more than 1000€ or something like that).
I would be interrested in having evaluation of price for Kiso Suzuki W180 !
