What are some must have early to mid 80s super strats?

Most of the older ibanez super strats I see here are late 80s and newer but what are other great models from the prime of 80s metal super strats? I'm not talking just ibanez but other manufactures as well. You know, some must have super strats from the day. Feel free to post pics.

Any Charvel, and Jackson Soloists, are probably the most respected.

Peavey Vandenbergs too. (The original neckthru ones, not the newer cheapy ones)

All of those, plus Rand and Robin. A Medley with maple fretboard will be mine someday.

I just picked up an old Larrivee RS-04, and it's pretty damn sweet. OFR, great neck-thru construction, ebony board.

I loved the neck-thru Carvins when they had the Jackson style headstock, body curves were a bit classic but those guitars just scream quality to me.

For me, it was all about ESP and Charvel in the '80's

Kramer Baretta and Pacer. Now that they're back I've been wanting to check out the modern versions.
