Defret Pau Ferro Fingerboard
I've just dropped off my beloved MIM Jazz V into my local luthier to be defretted and I was asked whether I would like an epoxy on the fingerboard. After reading threads on here that talk about it's effect on tone I decided against it. Being that my fingerboard is Pau Ferro rather than Rosewood and that I play only with flatwounds anyway I figured I'd be safe from having my fingerboard torn to peices. Is this a wise decision?

I would do it. AFAIK those fingerboards are pretty thick, so even if there is some wear, it can be sanded out. And epoxy can be applied later.
It was more of a problem with the old rosewood veneer FB Fenders.

I would epoxy. IMHO it focusses the tone and is a bit brighter, but the difference is small and the gain is you never have to worry about wear.
