Fret board stickers

Postby jdsmodulus » Mon Oct 04, 2010 8:00 am

Well thesse are being sold on Ebay, They come in different colors for your "Garcia" guitar. I say FAIL but what do I know I thought someone here might want them. They are pretty inexpensive. I have also seen Fake Ibanez Vines. I have heard that the PRS birds stickers work well and you cant tell that they are there. 2 cents.

I always wondered about these. Do you think they could actually harm a guitar or screw anything up? Would be kinda of fun to throw on my sg--if i knew they could peel right off without hurting anything--could trick my buds into thinking i just dropped some big cash for garcia inlays :lol:

I think it's interesting. What has me the most now is the dots. My Mody's side markers are really tough to see on dim stages.

I think that is a pretty cool idea. Just wonder what would happen when you go to clean or condition the fretboard.

I found their website (actually has cheaper shipping) if anyone is interested

http://www.inlaystickers.com/servlet/StoreFront

Also, it says they are easily removed.

For $10 I'll give it a shot...turn one of my cheapo guitars into a custom :lol:

I'm going to pull the trigger on these on friday. I have heard from other people they are great, and you can tell they are on.

Once I get them, I'll post a full review. Kind of a poor man's inlay

I'm thinking about buying a set of the fingerboard markers to stick onto my .050 shell blanks before cutting !!
You can never have too many inlay patterns kicking around !!!

:lol:

Strumminsix, what size are your side dots ?? A neat trick i do on Rosewood and Ebony fingerboards w/o binding is to use Aluminum rod . Drill yours out, if applicable, and put the aluminum in.......When light hits those, they light up like a little LED's, and you don't need much light at all to do it........... Stole that out of PRS' book !!

Smallest I've ever had :lol: Can't say exactly right now but have to say that I'm a bit wary of any permanent modifications to a Modulus.

Looking forward to your review. He's got a lot of cool stuff, but I figured you can be the guinea pig before I pull the trigger.
