+1. In 1990 there were no models below an SR600, previous to this there were not either. The first model (IIRC) was the SR1000, in 1987, which is vastly different.
The SR800 was out the next year, (which I have a SR885le). the end of the fretboards, like the op pic didn't start until the mid-late 90's.
This is an SR800LE, from '88
This is the 1000 series from '87
