Need help identifying guitar

I picked this up at a pawnshop for $50. As far as I can tell it is a RG340/140 from 1988, but I really don't know. It has no markings on the headstock other than Ibanez. There is a serial# on the neck plate that says 893033. It sounds great and has plenty of Mojo. I don't know what kind of wood it is, but it is quite heavy.

It's more like an EX 150 actually. It's Korean, and it would be from around 89-90. After that they said EX series on the headstock in one way or another.

If that is a Seymour Duncan Invader pup in the bridge, then you got yourself a good deal.

No it isn't burnt, it is just covered with pictures of the players guitar heros and custom painted with Krylon. And yes it is a SD invader, I originally bought the guitar just for the pickup, but after restringing the guitar is just amazing. It is a well played guitar that has lots of great tone and feel. The story I heard was the owner pawned it regularly over the last 7 years cause he got short on cash as is usually the case with musicians. Well something happened and he missed the deadline to get it out of hawk and lost it for good. If this guitar could talk.
