Output Jack Damage
Epiphone Emperor Regent VS

Background: This beautiful archtop arrived with an output jack that had taken a hit when plugged in, shattering the side where the jack is mounted. As well, the original plastic nut was blown.

Repairs: The jack was aligned correctly, locating the wood chards for initial glue-up. The jack was removed, side repairs completed, along with finish repair. A larger washer front and back of the jack helped increase the clamping surface area and also protect the repair. A cattle bone nut was made, and the guitar received a complete setup and flatwound strings.
