At a wild guess? 1996, Korea (Samick).

I like that article. The Washburn's heel plate certainly DOES look much like Samick's 1990s version.

But taken literally, the article says the one-digit year code was replaced by a two-digit "as 1990 approached." As the N2 was launched 1990, the ONLY year possible with that number is 1996.
