Bud's Epiphone Emperor Resonator Repair
4-12

Severe delamination of backplate from sidewall
Reglue and clamp warped backplate
No replacement parts


Completed the removal of delaminated backplate
 


You can see the deflection, it is not domed properly
It has been in dry clime and has lost its form

 


Glueing one side down to give a point of adhesion to allow me to pull the warped side down
I have heated the pieces to 100F to make them more pliable
 


Final glue and binding tape to hold until curing


Pulling tape


All sealed back down, ill touch up the finish around the edge  and inside and mail it back to Bud
