De-fretting synthetic fretboards

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by sshorepunk, Apr 26, 2004.

  1. Hi

    Has anyone out there ever tried to defret a synthetic type fret board such as the ebonal ones used on the Cort curbow basses? I would suspect the filling material would have to be of substantial hardness whn compressed between the remaining ebanol?

    It should actually be easier, as the material hardly would splint. Though I have of course not tried it!
    Filling material should be: ebonol! Seriously, try some kind of two component plastic. Around here, there is some epoxi based thing called Araldite, that would do greatly unless you want color. In that case, look for plastic sheets of some hardness.
