Special guest Ian Davlin from Lark Street Music in Teaneck, NJ, shows us how to patch a hole in an acoustic guitar body. Ian uses an epoxy putty that he mixes with ColorTone pigments and dyes, then paints on top of it to make a beautiful disguise. Ian shares some great pro tips for sanding as well.

 
In this Trade Secrets video:
  • Coloring epoxy for a fast and easy patch in a guitar side
  • Compare this epoxy substitute to a carefully fitted wood patch
  • Mixing ColorTone Stain to create a color match
  • Ian’s clear sanding block idea is brilliant!
