Abalone side dots

By

Verified Buyer


I was kind of hesitant to buy these since I couldn't see them first but I was very pleased when they arrived. I am purchasing supplies for a build and on a whim ordered these. They are very nice quality shell. I think I am going to grab some other ones soon for future builds.

I like.. but..

By

These are awesome, but do yourself a favor and spend the extra few bucks to get the correct drill bit or you will regret it. I did one hole with a nice snap-on drill bit the exact size and it still became an oval that was too large and chipped away at the clear coat in my guitar. The end result was a hole that was too big despite doing this by hand.

Which brings up another point. Use a jig to hold your guitar, and a drill press to drill a straight hole... aside from that I love the product. I'll follow my own advice on the next holes.

Nice consistent size and color

These dots are consistent in size and color over 10 packages of 10 each only 3 undersized by .002. I have installed them in many Ukulele’s in our club.

I usually buy 30 at a time, (three 10pks) for one fret board. Easy to make a fret board go from blah to bling using these. Pearl or abalone dots give the instrument an ornate, clean look. And with one bit it's fairly quick and easy.

Nice dots

I bought these for a ukulele that I purchased that doesn't have fret markers. 10 were in the pack and I think I used 7. Didn't take much effort to drill very shallow holes and mount these in with a drop of wood glue. Very happy with the result, I should have done it a year ago!

The pearl dots are great on dark boards and the abalone work fairly well on lighter boards. Used them on a maple fret board with good results.
Good quality and consistent size.
