Peeps, I may be able to purchase a 2003 Epiphone Explorer for a fair price. However there has been a bit of cosmetic damage around the nut which I would want repaired. All the bits and bobs on it are Gold which I would want replaced for Silver/Chrome (just personal preference). Anyone any ideas if cosmetic damage like this can be repaired (without a full new paint job) and if Chrome/silver replacement bits can be got hold of easily enough. I don’t seem to be able to find a specific Epiphone spares page to find the bits. Any thoughts re price would be good too. I wantes to add pictures BUT they all seem to be too big for some reason!
