Pearloid Dot

About This Item

Ready to inlay! These acrylic imitation pearl dots are the closest visual match we've found to actual white mother-of-pearl.

They're computer-cut for reliably consistent size and shape. A practical choice for many instruments: save time, save labor, save money.

Approximately 0.060" (1.5mm) thick in standard diameters, and ready to inlay. Sold individually.

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

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

I have not used the dots yet. but sometime in the future I may want to hide a screw head like I do with the smaller dots on bridge replacements.

Size issue.

By

I've purchased these dots before in the 6.3mm (1/4") size without a problem. This time I purchased 6mm by mistake. I should have sent them back or just ordered replacements but I tried to use them. Disaster. 6mm is not really 15/64. 15/64 is actually 5.95mm which in most cases would be close enough, but not for dot inlays. Trying to find a 6mm drill bit is not easy. Better off to go with 6.3mm and using a 1/4 drill bit. 1/4 is actually 6.35mm so a half mm breathing room works perfectly.

Bought those for a 1960 Gibson Melody Maker in a restoration project. Just measure your old dots and get the right size. I only had to smooth them out when installed. They were just a little brighter then original but will darken with time, hardly notice it.

Excellent Choice

I bought a 2015 Jose Ramirez 130 Años Classical Guitar. I put stick on fret markers because I don't like the "bare" looking fret board.. After a couple of months I decided to install permanent Pearloid Dots. I consulted a couple of friends guitarist and they all advised against it because it would take away the "classicness" of the guitar. They also said the guitar would depreciate. Well, after serious though, I bought the Dots from Stew-Mac and just finished installing them. Am I glad I did. The guitar looks very classic and more "professional". Perhaps I went against "tradition", but I like it. Maybe when I show it to my "traditional" friends they will change their minds.

I've bought these before and you cannot tell the difference with the real pearl ones. I ordered some more, there was a confusion and they sent me diamonds instead, but fixed the problem immediately. Great service Stewmac, thanks a lot!! That's why I buy here.
