I was thinking about defretting my bass, but it has an ebanol fretboard. If I were to do this, what would I use as filler?

I'm sure any of the conventional ways would be acceptable (Veneer in the fret slots or any type of filler in them). My only concern would be sanding it down to a good finish again afterwards.

Although...this post on another forum seems to suggest otherwise.

Yeah, I thought about veneers and wood filler, but wouldn't the tone change as I passed over them because of different material, therefore different texture, density, and everything else that changes tone?

The tiny space it takes to fill a fret slot won't change your tone. I've never had any problems with mine and I used a cheap filler that's usually put on walls.

You may, however, notice a change of tone with an ebonol fretboard, they give a more snappy and trebley tone.
