Question About The Neck/fret Board


Recommended Posts

go to the project guitar main site and look through the tutorials. There should be one on there about how to make your own palstic dots if you don't want to buy them. You will need a drill press though and a 1/4" brad point or forstner bit. A normal jobbers bit won't work.

Try playing it without markers first. You might be surprised.

There are still markers on the edge of the fretboard.

i agree... i find side markers absolutely critical but never notice when i dont have face markers

if you do decide to have them added its not too big a job... mostly it comes down to accurate marking and good (be patient, gentle but thorough) clean up afterwards

Few things cheapen a good looking fretboard than having "wrong" or unnecessary markers on the face!

(Look at the Ibanez RG2228 for example: wouldn't it look so much better without those boring round markers??)

I would deffo try it first...you can always add markers!
