    How do they do this with a graphite neck? This may be a stupid question, but, does it pose any problems?

    I don't see why it would pose any problems :confused:

    The refret process would be no different than a wooden neck. It may actually be easier as there is no chance of the composite splintering.

    The fingerboard material is not the same as the actual neck. It is either real wood (Modulus uses Chechen) or phenolic, a composite plasticlike material. Phenolic is durable as anything on the planet, but is fairly workable. You could easily remove the frets, level the board (I can't imagine it ever needing it) and replace the frets.
