Super Easy

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.

Silly Easy!

This is the single easiest part of making a guitar and quickly rewarding too. these look great. One stick is enough for a few guitars. Both sizes look great so it is all your taste.
