I'd guess it's an older model. Pre-Fender days for sure. You'd have to look at some (get someone on this forum to look for you) catalogues by Jackson Guitars that date the 80s-90s. That's as good a guess as I have.

I have my doubts about the guitar, look at the volume and tone controls are to damn close to each other! the floyd rose sits on top of the wood.

The control layout's not that out of the ordinary. Some people like that. That floyd mount is actually how floyds were back in the 80s. It's called a "top-mount" or a non-recessed. Check out Jackson's Adrian Smith signatures. He likes top mount floyds, as did a lot of Glam bands from the 80s.

It's more typical for a super strat of the 80s era to have top mount. It wasn't until people wanted to start pulling up as well as dive down that they started routing for a full recess.

Jackson did start off as a custom shop. Looking at this catalogue you can see an order form at the bottom. You'll also notice the top-mount Jackson tremolos in the catalogue. I'd bet it was a custom order.

I wouldn't know due to young age, but I don't think their custom shop at that time was tailored solely to high price customs.

well the floyd rose in the guitar doesn't have the Jackson logo on the bridge like some in that catalog, unless as you say it doesn't matter and it doesn't have a serial number either so what can it be done?

I haven't a clue really. The only other thing I can think is a partscaster. Jackson Neck onto a custom body perhaps. The pickups don't say Jackson on them, nor does the tremolo. It might just be a partscaster with a Jackson neck.
