S470, Korean? Japanese?

I have a '94 S470 in dark natural finish with all black hardware. *It has the rather cheap V1-S2-V2 pickup arrangement and a TRS bridge, indicating Korean make. *However, it clearly says "Made in Japan" on the headstock. *I know that guitars similar to this (JS100, etc.) are made in Korea, was this one an anomaly of some sort? Perhaps just the '94's? Any help is welcome, thanks.
