These little sticks go a long way!

A buck a strip and I get maybe 5 necks out of 1. But value is not really a value unless there is a certain level of quality that goes with it. I've used both sizes and colors, they all fit the stated hole size perfectly, no problem. Drill my holes first, put a drop of medium CA glue on a plastic lid and GO! dip the end a tad in the glue and it lubricates its way to the bottom of the hole. Trim long with a razor, cutters deform the material and then wont go into the next hole without dressing, then sand flat to the freboard. Easy-breezy.

Easy to work with, one piece can do 2-3 guitars depending on how long your insert is.

Works well, but the color is in a spectrum of it's own

This stuff is very simple to install, but be aware the white is a very bright pure white and will look quite different from mother of pearl (or imitation) fret markers.

Clean little dots

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.

It's a black plastic rod...not much to say really other than it goes in easily and it of nice quality.
