Thanks,I don't know. I guess you have to take the neck off to find the date.

I found this older post about a similar guitar that was made for the export market.

This is the 3-way switch from my RST-40

The colour is similar to the FERNANDES LD-85KK.
That is earlier than a Love Driver but it looks like the L'Arc Ken model colour wise.
