Don't pry the frets off or you will chip the fingerboard. Heat them up with a heavy duty soldering iron to melt the glue, the slide them out. This take a while since you don't want to burn the fingerboard. Take your time. Fill the fret slots with polystyrene strips, glueing them in, then sand them down carefully and finish with tung oil or superglue builtup in thin layers then polished smooth with 600 or finer sandpaper. Good luck
