Where can I get cover plates for this guitar. I see some on Ebay but those dealers are all in China.

Any LP style cover plates should fit, look for some on ebay off another Epiphone. Look for auction of guitar parts jumble, usually a few coverplates in there with some nice spares.

You could make your own if you have some tracing paper and a few tools?

Ok,thanks! I bought this set. It was from a dealer in China but the price was only $1.86 plus $2.20 shipping



Now I just need a sticker like below. It looks like ther used to be a round sticker on the back of my guitar and I think it was like the one below.

How does it play? I've wanted one of these or maybe the blueburst (purest in me says NO Needs to be Cherry) one as I've been a fan of the fREHleyZZ since I was about 12 yrs old (a long time)

You had a Greco one before didn't you? or at least a real Gibson Frehley???

As I remember on the Epiphone site this model was with the maple top of three pieces. I thought wow, that is an ache in the balls of every Gibson purist and the most of these purists definitely want this guitar.
