700's, yes, I'd never heard of any 100's, but it would be reasonable to assume that since they did make some 700's there they also did some 100's, probably about the same time, and probably for a particular reason.

well, yes I am 99.9% sure it is a genuine MIJ js100. A friend of mine bought it in '97, I remember him paying more for it than the Korean 100's. After some time he sold it to me...
