Pearl Dots

About This Item

Perfectly round 0.050" (1.27mm) thick mother-of-pearl dots with natural swirls and figuring. Sold individually.

White mother-of-pearl is a favorite inlay material. For international customers and instruments that didn't use real mother-of-pearl, we offer Pearloid Dots.

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 trust the diameter and thickness of the pearl dots of various sizes. The quality of the pearl is also good.

Used on the fret board of a guitar I built and they look very good. Uniform size.

Good material

Pros: Beautiful and consistent in color and shape. A real breeze to install with epoxy or acrylate. The fit is very tight to the hole made with the corresponding drill. Cons: Some may find the dots to be a little thin. I like them that way, I install them in very shallow and precision drilled holes. Some people would prefer more working height, to allow for deeper sanding/planing the fretboard.

easy to use

These dots look great and are easy to install.

Easiest to do on a bare slotted unfretted installed fingerboard. Just drill a shallow flat-bottomed hole with a 1/4" Forstner bit, put a drop of Crazy Glue in, and press in the dot. Then level it with the wood with a file, not sandpaper, and polish. Even without the glue, the dots are tight, so don't test fit them.

The often-seen method of drawing X's between the frets to mark center is not accurate at all, draw a centerline and then mark crosses with a ruler or even just a Mk I eyeball.

These are the real deal, indistinguishable from the OEM dots on my guitars that have dots. That's why I was pleasantly surprised how inexpensive they are on StewMac. I scalloped one of my fretboards from the 13th fret up, and of course destroyed the dots on those frets in the process. I thought about leaving it as is, since "distressed" is kind of the theme of that guitar to a certain extent anyway; but when I saw how cheap it was to replace them, I ordered a few, drilled a shallow hole in the recessed fretboard and glued these in. Hey presto! Fixed!
