Incoming! Actually lay-a-way.. Better yet, E Series MIJ. Gotta be a '84-'87..E8 isn't 1988..)sounded killer, so I had to put it on lay a way. When I take it home, I will look for the date on the neck, or with the pickguard off.. Odd that it has the heel truss adjust..most pics I see show either a maple w/plug, or the back truss access "hollow plug" on the headstock. Makes it look like a 62 RI, with a 80's decal.. Some natural relicing which is cool with me, it was probably a great guitar to play live, it shows! I will give it a good bath, and a couple lil tweaks, maybe a couple parts, and report back! Stay tuned!
