This wasn't used on an Epi, it was used on a StewMac kit guitar that needed something a bit extra without being too flashy, and it looks great. Having the dimensions available for all the various shapes made it easy to pick just what it needed.
I am very happy with the Mother of Pearl on Ebony TRC for my GS Mini Mahogany guitar, it is a great look. However, there was some spitting of the wood at the three holes where the screws affix the cover to the headstock,(as noted in another review) but difficult to see in this photo. I believe the problem is that the holes are undersized slightly as the Taylor OEM screws will indeed split the thin ebony veneer. Repeated removal of the TRC to access the truss rod may exacerbate the problem. This is not a problem with the original Taylor plastic TRC as it is much stronger than the thin ebony and additionally, the holes are chamfered to fit the wood screw correctly. Had I know this prior to mounting the TRC I would have carefully enlarged the holes slightly by hand before screwing it into place.
This truss rod cover looks great on my 810 Taylor and really ties the headstock and neck together with the matching patterns. I would definitely purchase again!
I found this truss today cover and it looked great, and came in a cross. When it arrived it was awesome. Installed easily - but do be careful as it is thin and frail wood that will split easily if you over tighten the screws. I was able to snag mine while it was on sale. I chose the ebony model as it matches the fretboard because I didn’t see a wood that matched my headstock.
Just after the first of the year during the stay at home period, I decided to build an LP style kit. I added an abalone inlay to the headstock and choose the Thalia truss rod cover to accent the headstock. It was a beautiful addition and I couldn’t be happier. Thank you.
