Tokai J5R653 Custom Edition. Think it needs metal vol and Tone knobs. Did someone on here recommend a chap who makes truss rod covers etc.

I had a spare back plate that fits exactly. note you do not need to load the strings of the Ayres rocker from the back and neither do you have to cut your balls off (ouch! :D ) , you can top load so this is fine:

Still not a quick change if a string ones live!

I also has a truss rod cover from an Encore neck that was curved. dropped it in boiling water and it flattened out (may work in reverse for others interested). The size fits but the bottom screw holes of the triangle are slightly out so I chose to leave them out. Just finishes it off nicely:

And here is the final look. Think I may do white Airfix paint touch ups for the dings. I will call this my Jackson eater in tribute to Eqypt guitars that did a Kramer eater!

P.s I do have a black plain trem arm too, just forgot to fit it for the photo!
