Anybody know anything about X-Series Destroyers?

Does anyone know anything much about the X-Series Destroyers? I've got an 85 model in black with the Pro-Rocker Trem, blade pickups, active electronics etc. I tried sourcing it in the 84 & 85 catalogues, but it doesn't look like black was an option (can only see stripes or barbed wire), so I'm wondering if it's been refinished at some point (unlikely as the neck and headstock match the body- painted neck)..

So if anyone knows...were they made out of basswood and why does there appear to be a screwhead just in front of the bridge ever so slightly visible through the paint (surely they didn't add this to bolt the wings together??)

Having said all that it's a lovely guitar to play and has a phenomenal tone. If it wasn't the fact that its hard case is too big to fit into my boot and the guitar itself is so big that I'd knock my brass section off the stage with it, I'd probably gig it more
