How To Remove Inlay Signature From Fretboard?

Recommended Posts

In my opinion, that is going to be almost impossible. I don't really know what else to say. If you feel you absolutely must, I foresee pulling out the frets, routing a new inlay cavity that totally encompasses the inlay in question, and installing a new inlay. If you don't have a lot of experience doing such a thing, then I highly recommend you stay away from it.

Well, yeah, but you wouldn't like it. Is it really that big of a deal? I have two recommendations for you:

1. Leave it as it is, and just get used to Stephen Carpenter's signature there.

2. Take it to a qualified luthier, tell him you want the inlay gone, even if it means replacing the fretboard, and be prepared to shell out some $$$.

I don't think this is gonna be a DIY job unless you have a good bit of experience.
