Dots were exactly as described for size. Very high quality look on a lap steel guitar I just finished. Made the fretboard look great! Will buy again for next project.
The mop dots came and were of decent quality...however I would prefer them to be a bit thicker. These are being inlaid into billiard cues.
These MOP dots are luminescent, perfectly round and consistent. What more could you ask for in a dot? ~Beau Hannam Guitars~
I recently installed these on my Tricone restoration... they match the manufacturers dots perfectly, sanded easily, and have a nice shine to them.
What can I say that hasn't been said. These dots are consistent and look great. I've used these on 4 builds now, and the one problem I had (with just this order)was that 2 of the dots were a tad bit over-sized. Yes, I checked them with a micrometer. No big deal though, just sanded them down a bit and they dropped in like the rest. That being said, that's 2 out of a total of 40ish dots, that's some good quality control if you ask me.
I restored my vintage FF Bacon banjo by replacing a missing pearl dot fret marker. It matched the 100 year-old markers perfectly.
I recently was given my Grandpa's 1964 Harmony H22 Bass. it had a few "Issues" that I needed to address. To start some of the Pearl Dot inlay's where missing so I looked up the part here on Stew-Mac and ordered them. I wasn't sure of the exact size, I did measure but didn't want to take a chance, so I ordered 6mm and 7mm. The 7mm fit perfectly. Thank You Stew- Mac for always having the right part for the job! :)
I'd like to see these just a tad thicker, but WOW! After I install and level sand these dots with 320 on my radius block, I give them a quick hit with 600 dry. a quick wipe with a dry rag and they just POP!
Quick tip: Order a few extra and lightly pre-sand the dots with some 600 grit before installation on both sides. You can then better match the dots for pearlessence and the angle that they fire best at. I like when my dots all fire at the same angle so none of them look dull while other look bright.
These are great for side dots. The size is always consistent, and the quality is fantastic.
I always know what I'm getting when I order StewMac MOP dots
