Re: fretboard removal


as far as whether or not the neck is savable really depends on the size and type of the break in the headstock. i mean, it's doable no matter what, but it might not end up being worth the effort.

i've removed several fingerboards before, and while it's not an easy (or quick) task in any way, the method on pg works. it works, but takes forever.

post some pics when you get the neck and we'll figure this thing out.

Re: fretboard removal


I pulled all the frets and ran the neck over a planer until I got down ALMOST to the truss rod. Glued on a new fretboard from stewmac and had a friend press in the frets. I drilled for side markers but left the face blank.
