I'm refretting an older epiphone before they were bought out by gibson. The fingerboard needed some sanding and I am finding out that it has been stained. I looked at the endgrain behind the nut and it is definitely a light colored wood.
Does anyone have any experience with this? Or any knowledge pertaining to the use of light colored fingerboards?
I suppose it isn't really a big deal, could I simply restain it? And if so, would I want to spray it first, then tape it off and refret/dress?
Thanks in advance!
