Thread Name: Ovation Guitar: how to reattach top?
Subject: Ovation Guitar: how to reattach top?
My Ovation guitar has been coming apart for years. I was able to hold it together with hot glue, duct tape and some kind of putty for several years but it gets worse and worse. Can someone walk me through the process of repairing it or maybe direct me to someone who can do a good job of repairing it? I'm between Atlanta, GA and Birmingham, AL but can send it to anyone I trust. I'm not too concerned about it's appearance; I just want to be able to play in tune which has not been possible for a long time now due to the uplifting of the top and consequent string-shortening. This has been my only guitar for the past 21 years but I'd be willing to trade it for something else just to have a playable instrument.
