Great quality / excellent customer service.

I ordered these dots in different sizes for a special customer project. When they arrived, there was a discrepancy with the sizes I ordered. With a quick email to customer service the problem was fixed immediately. I received the correct sizes in two days with no extra charges. The best customer service!

Most are Great Quality.....

(Customer's Reviews)


I ordered 14 dots (2 extra) just in case some were not usable based on previous reviews---- Should have ordered a bunch of extras as out of the 14 dots sent 4 were unusable (they looked bad with a strange black and white lace pattern). This left me 2 dots short and no time to re-order. I ended up going to the local hobby store and buying a piece of abalone shell and sawing an edge off to craft dots that were rounded to size with a diamond grit file (tough job by hand, but ended up working out perfect).

Moral of the story is...... these CAN be great quality dots like in the picture, but please buy a bunch of extra as some will probably look bad- from now on I will either order 5 extra or buy from another vendor.

Some nice, some not so nice

By
(Customer's Reviews)


The good new is that these are thick, solid pieces, and some do have beautiful figure and color, but out of the 25 dots that I purchased, only about half were pretty enough to put in an instrument that I care about. The rest were either too dull or blotchy. I don't expect all of them to be first-quality, but this was a little disappointing since I've had such a good experience with SM's other products, including white pearl and gold pearl dots. Maybe this is a fact of life with Paua, but I've done better buying elsewhere. Still, these met my needs, and the good ones do look nice.

The quality of this products is very good. It is the first time I have ever worked with any inlay and it was nice to get exactly what you asked for. I ordered both the 5mm and also the 6.35mm they were all there and were perfect. I will be buying more.

These abalone position markers are beautiful. Easy to install. Thay give the guitar an elegant look. I removed the clay dots from my strat, darkened the wood with StewMac Black Fingerboard Stain. I laid a base of 20-X super glue. The next day I put in the abalone dots. This baby's pretty.

What Big Dots you Got Granma!

I have gotten other dots of different materials from Stew-Mac and I was happy with them. I was the most pleased with these. They had lots of color contrast and the swirl patterns were great even on the smaller sizes (4mm) used for side dots. Brad Point bits and side face of tweezers with a little wood glue gets you a flawless,flush fit.
