    I was wondering, is there anyway to replace just the fretboard, not the actual neck, i have a fender with a rosewood fretboard and i want a maple fretboard with black dots (which i think is much nicer, but thats just me). or would it just be cheaper to buy a new Warmoth neck or somthing? I dont really have any skilled luithers around, exept maybe Samash about an hour away. Maybe i could send it off to have work done?i dont know what to do

    Anything is possible. Providing that is a slab fretboard it's not to much of a big deal to replace it, I've done it many times. A skilled luthier can do that for you.
    I think you may be better off just getting a Warmoth or Allparts neck, though. It may be cheaper, and considering you don't know any luthiers you trust, it is safer.
