It matches the description of the '88 AF200, with the narrow Artstar headstock.
The older acoustics were made by a Japanese company Called Kato they made the V300 series and a few other ones. The '98 catalog doesn't list the AF200 at all, and those Artstars all had the wide, tulip style headstock. Can you talk more about why the Terrada factory was a disaster?
