Next Sunday I'm heading back to Simons to put some work into the body . Today I decided to get this ugly ebonized fretboard off to make way for the new. It came off flawlessly. I use a snap away box cutter blade as my tool of choice for this. You just heat up the fretboard with an iron & start pushing & tapping the razor edge in-between the glue surfaces on the board & neck. When the glue is soft it goes through pretty easy. When it slows down you go back at the board with the iron again. Now I can start rebuilding.
