    Hi;
    Anyone else have an Epi T310 and info?
    It seems they had 2 different types of necks, 1 style like the hockey stick and one more "conventional"
    Mine was made in Korea, and it is plywood.
    Thanks
    Fred

    My first guitar was an Epiphone T-310. Bought it in Paraguay, South America and of all the guitars I've owned over the years, it is the one that I most regret selling. Great pickups, great look, great playability. It had the hockey stick head. Paid around $400 for it in 1990. I really miss that guitar.

    I bought one back in 1990 here in the UK, cost £150 (UK Sterling), has the hockey stick neck.

    It's a lovely guitar, I used it now tuned in 'Keef' open 'G' tuning and it has quite a flat profile on the neck, which lends itself perfectly for slide guitar playing. I would never be without it.

    I've kept it as standard, and the only criticism would be that the neck pickup is very weak and 'muddy' in sound, but the bridge pickup has a really nice typical tele twang.

    Well maybe but that's kinda what I do, I buy gear tweak it and sometimes repair it and send it on.
    Only one guitar in my home has the till death do we part and it was a gift from my lovely wife so.........
    I love to rebuild 50's through 70's Fender amps and then send them out to be used and loved and it helps pay for my own gear too.
    I can honestly say two things, the gear leaves my hands better than it was when I got it and All of my personal gear was free, unless you count my time tweaking, repairing etc the gear I buy and then resell

    And to answer the first question it's a bit over 9 lbs on my shipping scale

    310 yes, found one to. It saw some pretty rough times. Really rough as the pictures will show. Only thing is on the neck plate is no serial number.....only number i could find was on the neck when i removed it. Number is 90.8.24. Date? 24 0f august 1990 ? May be some one can help. For now the project is on its way.

    .

    I have one too, Korean built in 1999 by Samick in blond. Plays nice and sounds good. You'll enjoy it.

    Six barrel bridge style. Saddles are at least twice the diameter of a Fender and look more rugged.

    Snagged this one a few years. Weighs 10lbs. 8 ounces. Super skinny neck. Sounds great. I put a new Squier cv50 tele loaded control plate in it.
