Hey,

Just wanted to have some opinions on a customising idea I had today. Was thinking about buying a old Squier Strat (worked with them before), removing frets, sanding 'board down a bit then laying a metal fret board. Ontop of this adding a fernandes (or other, opinions great) sustainer kit in. Thinking about doing a silver glitter finnish on body and headstock but will still easily be persuaded otherwise. Ideas?

metal fretless = major buzz if u dont do it rite. settin ur action could have problems too. good idea tho. if u pull it off, put pics up and post a thread bout it

Could work. I've seen this done with glass before (take off frets, sand down flat, add long piece of glass to cover fingerboard) and it sounded pretty nice.

It wouldn't buzz any more than a normal board.. dare I ask if you even have any experience in this topic at all?

Its been done, I believe with brass or copper? Ill see if I can find pictures when I get home. Its made by some company in france I believe. Good tone too.
