Re: repairing worn out fret board
Depends on what you mean by "worn out". 0000 steel wool is used by some people for cleaning. If you are talking about pitts or grooves worn in the board, you would have to pull the frets, relevel the board, and refret -- assuming the wear didn't require removing too much wood. If you are just talking about a dirty, dried out board, you might clean it up with steel wool or a scraper and add some oil to bring it back to life.
