I ordered a bass neck online from mighty mite recently. It's maple with a rosewood fretboard. I wanted to dye the maple green but my dad told me I had to take the finish off first, but I was wondering if stripping agents might weaken the glue on the fretboard. Any advice from experienced luthiers out there? I'm at a loss right now ><

Rather than Dye the wood, you could sand the current finish (lacquer?) and then spray a green tinted lacquer over that. Obviously do some tests first. Same sort of thing as a Candy Coat.
