SO my guitar teacher told me about his friend who had modded his guitar and removed the frets to give a fretless guitar. I was thinking about doing this on my old strat copy seeing as the body is already being re-painted. I was just wondering how i would go about de-fretting my guitar.

You could probably just pull them out with pliers

Mitchell knows.

soldering iron to heat them and soften them, flat-faced pliers to remove them. Wood filler to fill the slots and a file to lower the nut for playable action.

but please, searchbar.

uhh, once u figure out how to get the frets out you could use a bit of bondo or something...

its kinda lame but it'll work fine

If you wanted to try it, you could remove the fretboard, and glue a new piece down, that's cut to scale, but not fretted.

Probably look nicer, if this is something you wanted to keep.
