I am defretting my Squier P-Bass to develop my skills in listening to the notes, not just playing them. Here is what I need: 1. Tools that work well. I am thinking just get a saudering iron to heat up the frets so that the glue will melt so that I can just slide the frets right out. 2. What are somethings I can fill the fret slots with? Store bought or home made, I do not really care. 3. Will I need to coat my neck in anything? 4. What strings work best with fretless basses?
