Hi, I have recently purchased a 2nd hand military green version of the EC-401. The colour is beautiful. However it was damaged in transit and a small part of the body has the paint chipped to expose the wood which is devastating as you no longer produce this colourway . I am looking to have this repaired. Do you sell the green paint at all or point me to a link to purchase this exact colour please?

Hey Kevin, there are a lot of aftermarket suppliers out there.  StewMac and Allparts would be great places to start.

Hi William, It comes with black hardware now, but we used to make it with black nickel hardware.
