Tokai Strat from circa 1984

Hi I wonder if you can help me identify my guitar? I bought it around 1984 and it has a five digit serial number with a small sticker on the base and back of the neck which has a '50' on it. The colour is metalic dark blue and I remember that it had a locking nut at the head, which I could never live with and so removed (it was at the height of Van Halen etc. so presumably pandering to that period a bit?).

I am a little confused about which model it is and therefore would be interested to learn more. I also need to sort out the electrics which are a bit dodgy. I think the pots need sorting out and the jack socket makes loud noises intermittently.

If its a Strat copy then the model is ST-50 (based on the sticker). Check the main site (www.tokairegistry.com) for catalogs that have a similar model.
