Converting fretted to fretless

Discussion in 'Luthier's Corner' started by EvoMan, Dec 15, 2002.


  1. I am wondering if anyone can give me info on coverting a fretted bass to a fretless. I've done this before, but what I am really interested in is finding about ways to finish the newly de-fretted neck. I would love to use something very hard like the diamondkote finish on Pedulla necks. I contacted them and they charge $450 to do the work for you, which is probably more than I can justify given the value of the instrument. Does anyone know of a good product that one can use to create such a slick finish on a fretboard? Thanks.

    Various epoxies exist that set up hard and relatively clear, but it's not a very fun job.
