Clay Dot

About This Item

Fretboard inlay dots for the early '60s Fender look. Cream-colored Corian® duplicates the distinctive look of old Fender position markers.

They're great for restorations and for making your instrument look more authentic. Reliably consistent 1/4" (6.35mm) diameter, approximately .060" (1.5mm) thick, and ready to inlay. Sold individually.

We also offer matching clay side dots for the edge of the fingerboard.

A little history: Clay position dots were first used by Fender in 1959, with the introduction of rosewood fingerboards on their instruments. Clay dots were discontinued in early 1965 and replaced by slightly larger 9/32" (7.14mm) pearloid dots.

Tip: We recommend epoxy or super glue for installing all our inlays.

Inlay filler colors can be mixed with epoxy for matching ebony and rosewood.

works well

(Customer's Reviews)

I purchased these to give a new P bass I'm building a vintage look and they work fine and were easy to install.


Wish they were thicker

(Customer's Reviews)

I gave a try to the new clay dots today. The color and material are nice but I wish they were thicker.
They are way too thin to allow proper installation on a standard 60Æs Fender neck and I had to carefully drill both +ö and 3/32ö marker holes very shallow so the dots could be fitted in to allow for flush sanding with the neck.
IÆll be glad to order more in the future if they will be offered thicker.

Clay Dots

(Customer's Reviews)

These are amazing. I used the fingerboard dots on a 1962 Jazzmaster that had generic white plastic dots installed by a previous owner. These are much truer to the original clay dots than anything I have seen on reissues/relics etc. from Fender. I'm considering replacing the fingerboard dots on a couple of Fender '62 reissues that I own.
