fingerboard removal and reglue
i need to remove a gloss maple fingerboard from a maple neck to replace a truss rod and install a couple of reinforcement rods
before i proceed i have tried this before using an iron but it wasn't on a finished neck, and some of the frets came of easily after the deed.. fortunately i was only experimenting with a cheap neck
this time i'd like to avoid that, any tips ??
another thing, i don't supose i could avoid refinishing the neck after i replace the truss rod and install the two rods, instead i'd like to refinish the area where the fretboard joins the neck(i'm thinking of using a razor to cleanly separate the two pieces where they are bound by the gloss finish), has anybody tried something like this?
