    im sure this topic has been brought up but i cant find it sorry

    i got a cheap ion p bass copy for 25$ from a freind well i dont have a fretless so i want to make it one

    i know ppl have used binding to feel the slots left by frets but it has to be cut in specefic width etc

    soo i want to just fill it i heard using saw dust and wood glue is a good way or wood putty and ?

    also what do u use to dye the filled in parts to a rosewood color

    i am not looking to make it really pretty i dont care like i said it cost 25$

    alos i dont want to spend money on a fret puller so im using regular pliers if that will work

    again sorry for the repeat of topic and thanks for the time and any info you TBer's have :)

    I prefer when people post, because then they get hassled. Amusing.

  7. And buy Dan Erlewine's book on guitar repair and maintenance.

    As Robert's Redfeet said in Jeremiah Johnson, "That is all you need to know."

    Let's see, don't want to use proper tools, spend any money, don't care how it looks--why don't you uses a beltsander, and sand the frets flush?
