Has anyone refretted an Adamas neck with the resin impregnated walnut fretboard? Do the frets pull out cleanly? Are there any special considerations either removing or installing frets?

My 1537 possibly. It was refurbed by Mother a few years back and cosmetically looks like a new guitar but with 35 years of gorgeous darkening of the top. The frets have some wear though not problematic yet. I prefer modern higher frets to the smaller fret wire used originally, and the EVO Gold would look fantastic on it. So maybe a project for this winter.
