86 - 89 is as close as you're going to get. The number on the sticker is random, no rhyme or reason like the current system. You can probably rule out 1989, the year by Gibson was removed from the headstock. The way I understand it, there were just a few late '88 by Gibsons that were completed in early 1989.

 

Any way, there's no big diff, as we used to say at Langley, close enough for Government work.
