1988 540S Neck Finish?

I have a 1988 S540 made in Japan and the back of the neck feels like its unfinished, maybe with just oil and/or wax. Does anyone know what the neck finish was on this year and model?

It was a gloss finish, like all wizard standard necks. AFAIK

Gloss finished, but so smooth and so thin that I sometimes struggle to tell the difference between the gloss on those and recent Tung Oil finished Ibanez models.
