This 1992 Ovation Collectors Series showed up at the shop with a break in one of its sound holes in the epaulets. Ovation was the best to work with as they sent a replacement epaulet at no charge. Our client was thrilled!
Step one was to install a backer, then install the thin broken piece of the soundboard. Once those two pieces were ready to go, it was just a matter of using a Dremel tool to reshape the sound hole circles.
Then installing the epaulet and shaping it to match the original.
All that is currently left is to touchup the clear lacquer.
