    I have a Fretless Jazz (no lines) with a rosewood fretboard. I am thinking of using some type of epoxy so that roundwounds wont did it up. Any suggestions as to what type of dressing(epoxy/urethane) or technique??

    I used epoxy on a rosewood fretboard and it turned out great. I used two-part epoxy that smelled foul. I put three or four coats on and used steel wool between coats. Rosewood is a very open-grained wood, and the epoxy bonded well, and didn't adversly effect the tone. I tried the exact same process on an ebony board, and it didn't work.
