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.

Great for adding side dots to a Classical neck

By

Received and used the side dots (with the tip from Dan on making a brad point 3/32 bit). The dots and the bit both worked excellent. Really added a classy touch to the instrument. The abalone really blends well with the ebony fingerboard so the dots aren't really noticable from a distance but are obvious to the player. Thanks StewMac and Dan E.

these are nice. They show up real well when installed. Very small. I use a pair of flat point tweasers to put them in place.

Pretty, but somewhat difficult to work with

These side dots look great and compliment the stew mac abalone dots perfectly. In general, they look beautiful and there weren't any that were all dark in the two packs I bought. Luckily I bought two packs, as I ended up dropping 3 or 4 of them when test fitting hole sizes. They didn't quite fit a 3/32" hole, so I had to ream it slightly with the drill bit. In testing the fit and depth, I dropped some... lost forever. They were a little thin, making the hole drilling difficult, hence my dropping. However, once finished, they turned out awesome.

Perfect sized and thickness! These were easy to drop right in the exact sized hole with a bit of Epoxy! Nice consistent quality.
