    TRC is easy. Dozens of them on eBay. Originals and repops.

    Neck plate is gonna be more of an issue. Fender plates are way easier, but I'm uncertain of the spacing for an Epi plate.

    The truss rod cover can be hard if the screw hole spacing is off. Philadelphia Luthier Supply usually has a spec diahram for each trc.
    +1 on eBay for the neck plate.

    The spacing can vary between models on an Epiphone . For instance a Lee Paul Special and SG Special have different sizes neck plates, the SG being smaller. I'm not sure what size a T310 would be.

    Me neither. Like I said, more of an issue. Just to clarify, I didn't mean to imply that a Fender would fit, just that they're FAR more common out in aftermarket-land.

    I was looking up truss covers on ebay after reading this thread earlier. $15-20 for original Epiphone covers!!! And no "gibson" epi covers except for one made to fit a Les Paul...and not those weird Lee Pauls I typoed earlier.

    Right. And I would imagine finding an engraved plate, like in the pic, would be even more difficult. I should go see what's out there just for the heckin' fun of it.

    Ok, that was quick. There are two of them, both for bass. Not sure if they would fit. One for $30 And the other for $60. When did modern Epiphone parts become so expensive??? Fine, I'm selling my potentially extra Epiphone -Gibson TRC for $50+shipping.
    :cool:

    That's making a problem pay for itself. :cheers:

    It's a little bigger than a $50 problem , but if I can sell the rest of the parts at an overinflated price, I can replace the whole guitar. :naughty:
