These were installed on a banjo that already had a finish, so I chose 1/16" because it seemed easier to cut and smooth without messing up the finish.

11 dots were installed. Only a little over 1" of material was used, including a couple test dots. If building from scratch (which I hope to do someday) I would have chosen 3/32" dots from a fancier material. However, these look great I'm happy with how they turned out. Great product, cheap, fast shipping, and easy to use!

I'm building a reverse-right strat using a lefty stock neck from Fender. As we all know, guitar necks usually only have side dots inlay'd on one side of the neck and because I'm a right-handed player with a lefty neck, I needed to find a way to add some markers to find my way around. Thanks to Stew-Mac having the perfect inlay material for the job and a step-by-step instruction video I was able to get the job done without having to go to a professional luthier. Thanks, guys!

So simple to use and it goes for miles and miles. I'd like it if you guys made this in a 1.5mm diametre; a size right between the two that you currently offer.

Not much to say about a little dowel of plastic. I would have given it 5 stars but it got 4 cause of the price, which could be lower. Its still cheap but c'mon its a tiny piece of plastic.

Very easy to install, both in wood or over plastic (bound necks). Just drill a hole with a bit the same size as the plastic, 1/16" depth or more. Press in the wire and cut with x-acto. No glue needed. May be sanded, scraped, planed and lacquered upon, if needed. Even a beginner can't go wrong. Excellent product.

Installed side dots on a left handed strat set up for righty, looks like a factory job!
