Update: I checked catalogs on Vintaxe & Tokairegistry and both the 1994 & 1995 catalog feature the exact page, models & pictures. So the catalog the ad refers to is mid 90s not mid 80s as suggested.

Yes, it looks that way but the guitar is 84 and as we have seen there were blister top LS200s around in 81. The date refers to the guitar for sale.

Of course you're right but the reason to post a 10 year younger catalog page as an empowerment for the sale eludes me.

Hey Rup, the 1984 LS200 sold on ebay I posted in the first post of this thread (and allegedly sold by togps) was yours before. Why didn?t you say anything? Check page 2:

where did you ship it to? I'm a jealous human who obviously joined this forum too late.

MIK????
The top level LS series are still made in Japan and this was the case in 1994. I think the LS50 - LS90 were MIK in '94 but the higher models were all MIJ
