Hi TBers, I picked up a damaged new Squier MIM Dimensions on the cheap ($150) with the intent of de-fretting the "G" and "D" strings. I'm not concerned with "looks" of my finished butchery but I do want a functional hybrid. All the threads I can find on TB describe adding partial frets during the build but not removing part of the fret after the build. I'm thinking of rigging a dremel saw to float above the fret board to cut where I want the fret to end then drilling at the cut point within the fret slot to make a weak point to bend/break the portion I want off. Dressing the end will be slow and laborious but the least om my concerns. I'm in the thinking stage right now and I'm not a luthier. Any pointers on how not to self destruct are greatly appreciated.
