AVG WORKPAGE
EPIPHONE FRONTIER



Contracted work - Binding replacement




Outside white is totally gassed out



Top and bottom, all has to go.








Always razor the meeting edge to offset chip outs


Some of the .010" black is melted to the white from the gassing
No matter how hard you try, this could happen depending on materials used and the gassing process.


You cannot peel that with a razor, its not glue, its "one"




So some of the black will need to be pieced in



That is how totally degraded celluloid comes off.




Ready to clean frets/oil board after binding










I will replace that missing MOP dot


Back completed, ready to scrape side then add tint.

FINAL PICS


MOP dot added
White binding tinted to the old amber yellow patina
Body buffed and polished


Fingerboard and frets cleaned and oiled



Ready for return
Thanks for watching
