: What is the best method for removing A fingerboard from a Engleheart?

Noticing your posting date,you have probably finished your job.
If not, use an infared heat lamp and thin bladed putty knife.
Heat slowly up and down the board concentrating on the nut area.
Work the knife under the board at the nut and slowly the board will start to separate.
Once you get down an inch or two, you can put a very slight wedge under the board. Keep heating as your doing this but DO NOT FORCE THE BOARD as the neck could split. Eventualy the fingerboard will pop off.
Remember, DO NOT FORCE.

Good Luck,
Pete Lampe
