    I built a laminated fretless neck and miscalculated the side dots. :rollno: I need to remove the fingerboard and replace it. I used original tite bond for the laminations and the fingerboard. I have a heat gun. What advice can you all give me? Thanks.......t

    An iron is probably better. heat it up until you can feel the heat in the back of the neck and then start peeling the board up with one of those cake frosting knives.
