I've got like 30 projects I need to do OK, I've got a Yamaha sitting around I never use, so I defretted it like 6 Months ago. I didn't do a good job... the neck has some high spots. But I did put a couple of coats of poly on it, and it dripped on the side of the neck, so that sucks. I was wondering if there is a sure fire way to get the neck as smooth/straight as possible. I mean, if I lose this bass, no big... but it would be nice to have a nicer fretless than I have.
