Made in Japan in 2007.
In 2007 it was an LS75/85F, in 2010 it became an LS98F.

Love this guitar.

Are you sure you can't see the Made in Japan on the back of the headstock...look very carefully, sometimes on a dark painted guitar it's almost invisible.

That's not a MIJ. Three screws on the TRC.

Guitar looks like it is Made in Korea or Made In China. Impossible to say nothing more. Three screw trc and non-japanese bridge posts. The painted serial numbers need to be "decrypted".

Made in China 2007ish, and quite possibly from the domestic Japanese market, by the correct headstock shape.

Looks like somebody changed the nut, which is generally a good thing, compared to the factory plastic item.

If it is setup nicely, should be a good guitar.

As long as the price is right.

Definitely not MIJ, so don't pay an MIJ price.
Totally biased towards Japanese made guitars.

Ih thai Tokai Dealer sale only Tokai LF 75 and Uper series
so this price about 10,000 bath or 335 $ is OK in price
