Original RG550 wiring

I have a "parts" 1989 RG550 and I thnk it's about time I got the wiring as close as I can back to stock.

I've found a wiring diagram here: ibanez.com/support/wiringdiagrams
But they only go back as 1994, So will the diagram be the same for previous years? My guess is yes but just making sure

Also the "Ibanez" 5 way switch, is it any different to a common "Strat" 5 way, as in is there a different number of solder lugs/contacts?
