I ordered a few yesterday (markers, eagle, eagle-earth). But I don't have a neck for my project yet, so I won't be much help in terms of pictures for a while.

from the noodling i did last night, I couldn't feel them, and they totally look great.

I put them on today - they look pretty decent especially considering the cost.

those look good, which ones are they?


Before the Garcia ones came out, I almost pulled the trigger on the space invaders ones. Something told me though, that space invaders doesn't go well with my jerrycaster

They're the "aged banjo type" they look like the inlays on the Gibson Mastertone that the guy in my bluegrass band has. I stopped after the 17th fret since the stickers weren't that much different than the abalone dots that the neck came with. This was kind of a test run for the guitar that I'm having built now - I'm just an impatient fuck so I wanted to see what they would look like right away. That neck has no face dots which can be problematic for my dyslexic brain - if the guitar turns out to be my next stage instrument I'll get a real inlay guy to do something nicer.

They don't look like real MOP and abalone when you're right up on them but from a little distance they look great.

For those who have received their inlays ... how are they standing up to the test of time?

Two gigs and they're holding up fine.

Had mine on for over a good month now. Not on my main guitar but I would say I have approximately 35 hours of playing on them (just at home) and have had no issues except at the first fret marker I may have caught it with a nail or snagged when I put a different set of strings on. Other than that I am happy with them.
