Plastic side dots

By
(Customer's Reviews)


By far the easiest side dots to install, perfectly sized so all you need to do is drill, press in, trim, and smooth off with a scraper. Fast, easy, efficient, what more do you need?

I bought a lefty saga replacement strat neck to put on a righty project I had. The other edge needed dots, and this totally did the trick. I just wish I would have purchased the larger diameter so it would match the side dots that came with the neck!

This is a no-brainer idea. Drill a hole, use a drop of super glue, insert the rod, wait a minute, use a sheet-rock knife for cutoff and trimming, and you're done...perfect job!

Simple but right

Almost felt silly about ordering a plastic rod, but it did the job perfectly. Just needed to add 3 dots to a tricone restoration, these are perfectly and consistently sized. Cut pretty easily with a razor, and also seemed to 'chip out' nicely when leveled, as opposed to distorting or bending.

Small extruded rods good for at least two necks. I am new to neck work and was impressed with how good this looked on first try with the StewMac maple binding. I used a zero-kerf hobby blade to cut, Super glue and no filler. Light sanding and done - easy!!
