defret with neck binding?

Discussion in 'Hardware, Setup & Repair [BG]' started by SwilsonR, Apr 28, 2004.

  1. i have a Washburn AB-45 that i'm considering defretting. however, it has neck binding (looks like some kind of plastic with a gloss applied to it). am i correct in assuming that the frets extend into the binding, and if so, would this complicate a defret job? :help:
  2. Im willing to bet there is a very high chance of breaking the binding if you remove the frets. This one sounds like a job for a Luthier.
