    The ad calls it a "late 80s sr800" but it doesn't look like the pics of any sr800 I can find. Also with Ibanez naming convention I would expect an 800 to be a 4-string and an 805 to be a fiver.

    Anybody know the model name?

    It's an SR05, they were made in 1988.

    Thanks, that definitely looks like it.
    Interesting how the finish has faded. I kinda like it based on the pics in the ad. I think I'll go see it in person.

    Thanks again for your help!

    SR05 knobs and output jack are in different positions.

    Looks more related to the 92-93 SR885...

    This looks like the right one, especially since the listing says its some kind of 800.

    Good eye, the one I linked doesn't have the contour on the body by the controls.

    It is an interesting pearl teal. The only photo in the ad that really shows it is the one of the back of the headstock.
