Pearl Fretboard Side Dots

About This Item

Perfectly cut position markers for the edge of the fingerboard. Made from genuine shell material, perfectly cut to drop right into place.

They're small, but they make a big difference to the player. Perfectly cut circles with consistent diameter and thickness — what a time saver!

Diameter: 3/32" (2.38mm)
Thickness: 0.050" (1.27mm)

Sold in packages of 10.

We recommend epoxy or super glue for installing all our inlays and side dots.

Inlay filler colors can be mixed with epoxy for matching ebony and rosewood.

I love these things!

I usually buy 30 at a time, (three 10pks) for one fret board. Easy to make a fret board go from blah to bling using these. Pearl or abalone dots give the instrument an ornate, clean look. And with one bit it's fairly quick and easy.

I bought these for a ukulele that I purchased that doesn't have fret markers. 10 were in the pack and I think I used 7. Didn't take much effort to drill very shallow holes and mount these in with a drop of wood glue. Very happy with the result, I should have done it a year ago!

The pearl dots are great on dark boards and the abalone work fairly well on lighter boards. Used them on a maple fret board with good results.
Good quality and consistent size.

Very nice set of abalone side dots. Fit perfectly with no gaps. Only downside is that they've been inconsistent in color. Bought several sets in order to get a complete set of dark blue/green. There have always been a mix of white abalone dots with the dark blue/green dots in each of the sets. Luckily, they're good and cheap so it's not that big of a deal to order more than one set.

Thanks Stewmac! These position markers are always uniform and are of fine quality!
