Post subject:  can anyone identify this model?

I bought this guitar in 1993 or so, and I'm pretty sure that it was new -- but I don't have any paperwork on it, and I haven't been able to find anything that matches it. Can someone identify it for me, and/or tell me anything about its hardware? Thanks!

According to the 1984 Rickenbacker catalog, the Model 230 "Hamburg" bridge assembly and keys are chrome plated. The pickups are single coil and the catalog states it's an "extremely high output design for overdrive effects with unusually wide spectral response."
