Ponder, I'm in the middle of customizing a Jazz Bass, and would like to change the white fingerboard dots to abalone ones. I can get precut dots from a local store, so the problem remaining would be how to get the old glue-fastened dots out. I've been suggested that I could carve a tiny slot into each marker either with a dremel or a knife, and then twist the dot off with a small screwdriver. Should I follow this plan, or would anyone with expertise on the matter have different ideas how to do it? Also, I guess pretty much any glue will do for fastening the new ones, right? Thanks everybody.
