    Can anything be done (relatively easily) to soften a rather sharp 90 edge of a bound fingerboard? I know you can roll a screwdriver over unbound rosewood but I'm assuming that won't work so well on binding. Thanks.

    Lady's padded nail file. Or you could scrape it with a razor.

    "Roll a screwdriver"??!? Maybe drink one!

    Scraping, sanding, yes, on wood or plastic.
