I wanted some real pearl dots to replace the original "clay" (apparently "clay" now means "plastic") dots in my bass. Most MOP dots seem to be very cold (bluish). I wanted something with a warmer tone to match the natural wood & ivory coloring of the instrument, but with a good color flash as well. These were perfect! Most gold pearl that I've seen is much too yellow, but the pictures of these looked just right, and the product was exactly as shown. Good job.
I use these over white most anytime on figured woods. Classy look and consistant color. You can chose how aged a look you want as one side is more golden and one side is more on the whiter side. No need to buy extras for a great color match.
Each one exactly the same size, thickness and coloration make for a perfect looking job. Stew-Mac has provided quality parts for at least as long as I have used them.
Fit and looked great in my 1954 Gibson ES-145. The gold pearl looked vintage and belonged with the other fret board dots.
the dot inlays are the easiest and fastest way on a mandolin fretboard and gives a nice traditional look. always fit perfect
I used a drill press and kept everything straight then glued in with super glue... used a 12" block to clean up... came out really nice!
I have used the 1/4" pearl dots as fretboard position markers for years. The always fit the hole drilled by my 1/4" forstner bit.
