How do you REMOVE a fretboard from a guitar?

Hello, i will be making my own ibanez 777dy neck with my sharktooth rg550 neck... is there any way to remove a fretboard if so is it easy to do at home? i found a fretboard with inlays on the bay for cheap.

Please provide me your knowledge =]

In my opinion if your asking, then you should learn how to do it properly before you attempt this, or take it to a pro...

With all my best, my suggestion is that take it to the Pro. It may look easy to take fretboard off, but it has to be done very carefully... why you canīt just change the whole neck? Of course there ainīt many around, but still that job is not for everyone...?
