The Guitar and bobo dodo like this post
build, so that would mean it was produced later than 1987.
The 1988 models may be laminates rather than solid wood.
Models that originally had the Bendmaster Deluxe trem were later (88/89?) fitted with the TRS-101 made by Takeuchi of Japan.
neck: hard rock Maple
25.5 inch scale
pickups: Ferrite single coil (Neck) and humbucker (Bridge)
master volume and tone controls
2-way mini switch (Neck pickup) and 3-way mini switch (Bridge pickup)
standard trem system

I’m pretty sure mine is plywood and is thus as heavy as the Moon, but it really is a beautiful guitar to play! Mine has the Bendmaster Deluxe bridge and stringlock - I can’t see what your bridge is, but you do have the BD stringlock, missing the bolts, shims and locking pieces.
Mine doesn’t have the string bar behind the stringlock; doesn’t have the holes for one, either; not sure that’s OEM!
I swapped the OEM bridge pickup on mine for an MMK45, which has made quite the difference in sound quality and quantity!
You’ve worked out that the switches are on/off for the s/c, and single coil/off/two coils for the bridge pickup, yes?
Anyway, I like mine just fine; enjoy the hell out of yours!!
