    Hi everyone, this is my first post (i think) but i have been lurking for a couple of years now.

    Anyhow, i have picked up quite a few old yamaha rg electric guitars to practic my woodworking skills on. One of the guitars had really worn down frets and when i removed them the (rosewood) fretboard chipped like mad, so now there are lots of chips coming out from my fret slots. What should i use to fill in the fretboard before i put on new frets?

    I know this isnt a bass but im working on the cheapest objects i can find to buikd up skill.

    Thanks in advance.
