Any Fernandes Afficionados Here? Need Help Identifying an Older One

I'm looking for some help identifying this guitar. Getting some decent photos sent from GC along with the serial number, so once I have them I'd be happy to send them to anyone who thinks they can help me out.

I've done some pretty exhaustive research, but I can't find it in any catalog. Based on the headstock and the fact that it has a neckplate, I think it's made mid to late 80's.

Here's the specs the best I can give them. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

- Revolver body shape
- Quilted maple arch top, quilted maple back; It may be a gravure
- Finish is a turquoise/black burst reminiscent of some of the 90's Ibanez S540FMs
- H/S/S pickup config
- 5 way blade selector switch
- 1 volume, 1 tone, with top hat knobs
- electronics cavity routed in back of guitar
- 24 fret maple neck with rosewood fretboard and pearl dot inlays
- Maple headstock with vintage string trees (headstock is NOT Fender shaped)
- Fernandes logo denoting 86-97 year of manufacture
- Frets look to be extra jumbo (they're HUGE)
- Gold Vintage style tremolo stamped with Fernandes logo
- Gold Gotoh tuners
- Gold neck plate stamped with Fernandes Logo and "Made in Japan"

Hi, I was wondering if you ever found out the model of fernandes it was, because I found one at a pawn shop in perfect condition for 150 and was wondering if it was worth picking up. Thanks!
