What is the difference in a "Made in Japan" and a "crafted in Japan". Is one better than the other? Just curious on this one.
Please correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe it is;
MIJ = 1982 - 1997
CIJ = 1997 - present
Here is a site with serial number information
Serial/Dates of Manufacture
Manufacturing facilities may have changed over the years, but one is not better than the other.
