Comments: none
[1] the Serial Number Format for this model may be either K302xxx or myypppp. For both the DT-150 and the DT-155 models, it appears that the serial numbers prior to approximately June 1983 are in the format K302xxx. We do not currently know how this format breaks down.

For the DT-150 and the DT-155 models produced in June 1983 and later, the serial number format is myypppp where:

m = month of manufacture (e.g.: A = Jan, B = Feb, ... , K = Nov, L = Dec)
yy = last two digits of the year of manufacture (e.g.: 83 = 1983)
pppp = the sequential production number for this individual guitar out of all Ibanez electric guitars manufactured during the specified month/year at a given factory

Note: pppp is not the total number of guitars manufactured of this model.
[2] the targeted Market values are assumptions based upon the geographic region or the language of the catalog(s) in which a given model appears. If a model appears in a Japanese language catalog, the Market is assumed to be East. If a model appears in an English language catalog, the Market is assumed to be West. Otherwise, geographic area such as North America or Asia determines the market designation of East or West.
