Heyo. So I have this really cool guitar, I bought what appears to be a Chinese/Korean Jackson Firebird that is a copy of the Robin Crosby Firebird with a floyd and 1 humbucker. It's got a reverse headstock. Overall the construction is pretty good, set in neck and the actual neck shape is very nice. As it sits it sounds great, I've ripped all the crummy hardware off of it and put an OFR, a new pickup and CTS pot, new jack and it sounds incredible now. I have 2 main problems however. One is that there is no neck angle, and since it has a flat top floyd the strings just sit way too high off the fretboard and there is no further room to adjust to get the action lower, 2.) the fretwork is absolute garbage. There are two solutions I've been mulling over, one is to rip the shitty rosewood board off and put an ebony board with real MOP sharkfins on it, which I'm really leaning towards and do a very slight route for the trem. Or just the route and a refret. So, the traditional way to remove a fretboard is to heat it off with an iron, or some steam. I'm not sure what glue they could have used. What I thought about doing is since I want to re fret it anyhow, I could pull the frets out and route the fingerboard off, I could make a jig and that way I can precisely route the depth just to the point of seeing the mahogany of the neck then I could finish up with hand tools. Also it's a painted neck with binding so I'd score alone the binding with a sharp xacto knife. I know this sounds like an awful lot of work and there will be issues and I could potentially screw this totally up. What say you fine opinionated folks?!
