Very nice

I bought a nice, used, entry-level, Takamine classical guitar. It does not come with side fret markers and that was a problem for me. I looked into the do-it-yourself approach and I did it. These abalones pieces come in variety of shades and colors (often bluish on one side and whiter on the other). I ordered a matching size brad-tip drillbit from another company and my luthier friend lent me a handheld manual drill device to do the the drilling slowly and controlled.(forgot what it is called). I carefully measured the position (hardest part of the whole job) and then did it. Once I tapped them in it was difficult or impossible to get them out. They will pretty much want to stay flush with the edge even if the hole is a little deep. Two of them were attached with a tiny drop of wood glue applied on a needle. Result is quite good for an amateur.

Great every time. Be carefull when tapping them in. Sometimes you can pop a layer of the shell off and create a void if tapping too hard. Or not having it start in straight. Use a plastic mallet.
