Roadstar II in H-S configuration?

I've come across a black w/black pickguard example of this model. It's got a three way switch, one volume pot, one tone pot, and the power rocker bridge. Seems like a standard Strat trem bar fits in there decently well. It's got "MADE IN JAPAN" stamped on the neck plate and the neck is unpainted.

I flipped through the catalogs on Rich's site and can't find any of these with a humbucker at the bridge and a single coil at the neck. I know these bodies were swimming pool routed, so is it possible this is an aftermarket guard with aftermarket pickups? Or maybe this is just a rare model? It seems to play well and I can nab it for a couple hundred or less. It's in player's condition but I don't care how it looks.

Any advice or information would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Edit: Oh, I don't remember the serial number but it started with F8 and it had jumbo frets.

Re: Roadstar II in H-S configuration?

Ah, thanks for the tip - I must have "misremembered" the pickguard - it's a RS335BK. I'm picking it up later for $180. If anybody wants, I'll take it apart and post pics along the way (it needs a thorough cleaning and setup anyway).
