Thinking of doing a defret on my own. Thanks to TB I have learned alot about what is involved. I am more concerned about the integrity of the fingerboard and fret inlays (thinking of doing white plastic per SurferJoe http://www.talkbass.com/forum/f18/economical-defret-job-912156/ ) Would it be a must to epoxy this when finished? Are there any alternatives on finishing a fretless neck with slot inlays? I want them to stay intact and everything be sealed solid when done. But am actually more concerned on doing an epoxy job rather then the defretting. What else could I do?
