I was wondering if anybody has removed a fretted fingerboard and installed a blank fretless fingerboard? I know that the common way to do a fretless conversion is to yank and fill frets. I really prefer the look and feel of a blank board. I've got a 2nd gen. Peavey TL-5 bass. I've been told that fingerboards can be removed but it's obviously pretty involved. The main problem I see with this bass is that (and I'm assuming here) the bass is finished in poly and the fingerboard sides would need to be somehow scored and separated. I've also been told poly chips easily and this would be a problem too. Has anyone successfully done this type of conversion? Thanks for all wisdom.
