There isn't much info to be found on Fender's outside-USA made acoustics.
And do not trust the Fender's support/product dating page info; DG's have been made in China, but at least in Indonesia, too.

The sticker tells the model, that's DG-4 (sometimes spelled DG4 in the web). The NAT is the color; natural. Usually with Chinese Fenders, the first two serial numbers tell the year, so that would make yours a 2001(ish) model.
With DG-series, the model number followed the quality/price class, so the DG-4 is an entry level, lower priced guitar - I think it could have been originally an "acoustic value pack" guitar. This, of course, doesn't mean any bias against the guitar, many economy Fender acoustics play & sound real nice.

Here's a bit of info on the sister model; DG-5: https://forums.fender.com/viewtopic.php?t=39509
