1988 is about right. I think the Eagle 2 SL came out about then and the Eagle 2 SL 90 was in 1990. There was also an Eagle 2 SL 90.5 . You guessed it, released mid year 1990.

There should have been a sticker or decal on the left side opposite of the serial # decal located in the battery compartment. It has 4 digits on it. The first and last digits denote year. I have a couple of Eagle Spectrums and they have that sticker/decal. For instance...'9XX4' means made in 1994.
