Anyone have access to a '88 catalog? - Unknown RG needs a mo

I have an Ibanez that I can't identify. If anyone can help me out it would be greatly appreciated.
I've e-mailed Ibanez (LOL) and also put several posts on harmonycentral.com but I can't find any descriptions that exactly match my guitar.
Here's what it is & has:

RG body style, but doesn't say "RG" on the headstock.
The body is heavier....it has awesome sustain.
The Fire-Orange finish, with a black pickguard and IBZ USA pickups...standard H/S/H config. The trem cavity has a black finish.
Binding on fretboard and headstock.
Original EDGE trem system.
Sharktooth inlays, rosewood fretboard.
It has the heavy, engraved/embossed neck plate, with the Ibanez address in Bensalem, PA and a number stamped into the plate: 884527. *1988 model?
Nowhere on the guitar is listed a country of mfg.
There are no numbers or stampings on the back of the headstock.
Genuine GOTOH tuners.
Black hardware throughout.

Any ideas? *This guitar I got in a pawn shop about 6 yrs ago for $200.00 in excellent cond. with the Ibanez case.
It's been my main guitar for years, and it looks right at home next to my 7VWH and the JS1000. *
Thanks in advance....

Very cool....thanks Rich. *
It definately feels & plays like a higher-end guitar.
Is that one a Japan issue?

RG5** and up - Japan
RG4** down - Korea
With a new Japanese RG470? to screw the whole formula up!
