Stew-Mac side dot material is easy to work with and yields perfect results.
I got the 1/16 black and it works just fine. I made an error and dipped the tips in my binding cement then placed in my pre-drilled holes. This turned out to be too much cement and sort of melted the thin rod and a few fret markers came out blurry even after scrapping. Next time I'll use a toothpick or just use super glue sparingly from a fine tip to fill the holes.
Not much you can say about a thin rod of plastic! But it works just as it should.
It's a black plastic rod...not much to say really other than it goes in easily and it of nice quality.
This is a great product, effortless to install. One rod does many instruments.
This is the single easiest part of making a guitar and quickly rewarding too. these look great. One stick is enough for a few guitars. Both sizes look great so it is all your taste.
Great little item. Lasts forever, quality part.
Ive used these on many guitars over the years... mark a spot with a center punch, drill and super glue... all good!
This order was to replenish my stock of side dots. Have used it for years Good stuff
High everyone,Don the maddog luthier here to tell everyone about the side dot material available from Stewmac. Using an 1/8" drill bit,and some medium superglue is all it takes. The drill bit give a slight bit of wiggle room, which is great for the glue to get to all the surfaces,after drying I just come in with my flat surface nippers(fretting),cut, use a scraper for final surfacing. The material takes on finish very well,no complaints here. I can do 3-4 fingerboards per stick,and always try to keep some on hand.
