Hi guys. Doing a refin on a '75 Corsair, looking for a vintage Electra Truss rod cover. Somebody stripped the cherry sunburst off of it at some point in its lifetime to resemble a Mapleglo (2279?) finish. Found the existing finish under the tuners and red overspray in the body cavity. Electronics and neck are great, so I'm going to repaint it. I'm think in' teal burst! Pics up soon.

Is it a set neck stereo model , bolt neck mono or the transitional bolted and glued neck? Can't wait to see your pictures. Which truss rod cover are you looking for? There are script logo and peace sign and goofy logo ones out there.

Here is a picture of all 3 types from Electrafest last year.
