I doubt it's MIJ, probably AVRI on account of the bridge mute. Or it could be a Partsmaster.

You MUST mean bridge cover, right??  ???

And those can be purchased just about anywhere, vintage or repro, so it's not a good way to tell if a guitar is CIJ or AVRI..  In fact, the trem is definitely CIJ (the hole is oval shaped rather than round, and the trem lock is bright chrome and has square edges rather than matte with rounded edges).

I cannot really remember if the guitar is MIJ/CIJ or a partsmaster....

I did mean bridge cover yes, but it's not necessarily CIJ
