Strange binary code on this JEM BFP neck

A good friend's guitar here. Seems that the previous owner once used a wrong product on some of the frets. Really is a shame. I've been setting her up for him, but I promised myself to make it a personal quest to get the fretboard back to as it should be. He already used steel whool 0000 to get some of, it was quite worse when he got it. But is seems that the dirt or whatever it is is deeper ingrained in the wood, what is being referred to as ghosting here I think. Any opinions ? can it be bleached out without ruining the wood ? Thx !

btw... I really was surprised by these PAF pickups... dang, so crunchy!

I need input on this. A lot is covered in the sticky about maple necks, but this is just an odd situation. Thx!

It's dirty because there is no clearcoat protecting between those frets.

Indeed, but how would you remove It? Surface feels smooth, owner already used steel whool 0000 to get some of. whatvis left seems to be deeper in the wood.

sand it more, then either cover it with same color wood putty or else you just made yourself a scalloped neck
