What S-Series model do I have? - ...I always thought it was

I have a DSY Saber, serial # 880489 (Bensalem neck plate) - so I assume it's a 1988 model (?). Original Edge trem with HSH IBZUSA pups, 22 fret rosewood board with the small dot inlays on a maple Wizard neck, headstock is black (not DSY - and no ST inlays, so not a FGM).

I always assumed it's a RS540, but as I was searching around, I see that there were so many different early S models that it's difficult to tell (Deluxe, Standard, etc...).

Anyone know, or know where I could find out for sure?

Right - I pretty much knew it was an '88, the bigger question is, which S model?

Anyone?

Does it say "Custom Model" at the last fret? *If so there's one similar at my local guitar shop. *Very nice.

Nope. I was going to post it in the ad section for sale, but I'd hate to say it was a particular model (RS 540) and have it be something else - who wants to buy a guitar from a dope!

Oh - it has a 5-way switch and not the 3 separate mini-switches.

So, WHO has an 88 catalog? *Anyone?

We need a repository for complete catalog scans...

I've been meaning to scan every page of all the catalogs to cover the whole deal, lack of time keeps getting in the way.
