You can read my rant in my reply to the thread Is it necessary to coat a rosewood fretless fretboard? So basically I had customers bringing me quite recent fretless basses (2 LTDs, 2 Schecters, 1 Yamaha, 1 Sire/Marcus Miller) with damaged "rosewood" fingerboards from rather limited use. Turns out the "rosewoods" used, are way too soft to be considered proper wood for fretless boards. Even after a proper CA (crazy gluen, super glue) treatement, they STILL are too soft. I tried Epoxy on the Yamaha, also too soft a result. Darn. Excluding a board replacement, I find myself in a position where I can not satisfy my customers. I'm kinda forced to tell them, in some way or another, that their instrument... well... is a piece of crap (fingerboard-wise). Lol. So my question is, does someone here know a manageable, not crazy expensive coating process ending up in something harder than CA and Epoxy?
