Removing the fret board is a job that requires a lot of skills. You will most likely have to do a refinish after the switch, if not complete, so at least partial. Are you completely new to guitar building/tinkering? If so, I recommend getting a few book on guitar building. Melvin Hiscocks Make your own electric guitar is considered a very good book, and the one that got a lot of us started. This book will give you some ideas about the extent of this job.
