Not correct, or consistent, diameter

By

Verified Buyer


I've used these on many builds in the past, and they always worked great with a 3/32" bit.

In the last batch of 40 I bought, none of them were 2.38mm in diameter as advertised, and none of the 4 sets were the same diameter either (varying from 2.19mm to 2.33mm).

So buyer beware: if you're going to use these, make sure you measure them before drilling your holes!!

Quick and easy installment!

I had built a new neck for my 'project banjo'. Had neglected to mount the little edge side markers. Can't believe how quickly Stew-Mac sent my order, and how easy it was to install the pearloid side dots! Sanded them flush, and now enjoying finding my way along the fingerboard.

Good stuff!

Consistent size and shape made it a breeze!
The tiny black dots on the White Falcon’s gold flake binding are invisible during gigs. The pearloid dots look promising without going overboard with Luminlay dots or something similar.

I am building and OM kit and didn't like the look of the small plastic, so I installed these and they match the inlays perfectly. Looks better

Nice looking dots

I used these in the ebony fret-board on my StewMac Dreadnought. They are a perfect match for the dots provided with the kit for the fret-board face. They look better than the 1/16" white plastic provided with the kit.

Install Very Carefully

By

Verified Buyer


I just bought a set to install on my new Jose Ramirez 130 Años Classic guitar. The side dots were easy to install, but because of the very thin space to drill a person must be very careful measuring and drilling. Otherwise, highly recommend them unless you happen to be a purist.
