Any J-200 Jr. history buffs out there?

I had a J-200 Jr., one of the first, back in 1992. Does anyone here have historical details about the model, e.g. specifications, when it was officially introduced, when and why it was discontinued, production totals? I loved mine and I just ordered a special-order J-200 Jr. from Bozeman. Its specs include an Adirondack Spruce top and a bound fretboard and headstock, which the original J-200 Jr. didn't have. I can't wait. This is a guitar model I think should be among Gibson's regular production models. I like to refer to it as my "J-200 Jr. True Vintage" model.
