That looks like a legit UCEWFM from 1992. I think the pickups are not the original ones.

From my perspective it looks like a pre-1992 UCEW
Why? ->
Headstoc logo version, pickup rings used, black hardware, neck binding, no dot inlays, and - i assume - no birdseye maple neck

I second TriSound's opinion - it's definitely not a 1992. Judging from the style of neck (Fujigen made - you can tell from the binding, the shark's tooth inlays and the headstock) and the thickness of the maple cap it's a 1990..1991 UCEW1FM with aftermarket pickups. I also claim it was refinished, i.e. stripped from the clear and color coats and refinished with oil & wax.
