I rescued this early 70's model really cheap from a pawn shop. It wasn't playable and took some work to to get it right. I ended up with a really nice sounding guitar. Has the original blue sticker and also the neck block screws cover with the original sticker. It still has the original nut and tuners. I considered throwing out the tuners because they were so bad but decided to give them a good overhaul and they came out great.
I do have a question about the guitar. How can you tell if this was one that was made in the U.S. even though it says made in Japan on the tag. I heard some were tagged as mij but made in the U.S.

Welcome.
I'm no authority on this but I'm of the impression all FT 150s were MIJ. You got pics? We like pics. :D

No need to go through a hosting site.
Just shrink them down to 100 kb or less and just upload directly from your computer (works for me).
