I'm a minimalist, a few dot markers and side markers will do me.
Much as they look good, even a Les Paul has too much embellishment when you consider the trapezoid first fret and the layers of pearloid in the binding. More costs to produce means more cost to the consumer (us).
 
You could do your coats, clean out the slots at the end. You’d have to be careful because it’s basically a bound fretboard, but it’s doable. When it comes to any sort of glue for the frets, you’d have to tape off (careful not to let it react w/finish) or be incredibly careful. Maybe do a last clear pass after fretting. This whole process wouldn’t be too bad with CNC. Even if it is cheating.

And yeah the last thing I want on a fretboard are paint chips flaking off after years of playing. But his pieces are more for show than playing. Best case scenario, there’s an incredibly beautiful contrasting wood underneath that begins to show and brings a new dimension to the piece, but I’m still skeptical about how that’d look/feel.
