Hello is there a way to change/make your own inlays because I want something different than pearl dots. Besides making a new neck or using stickers.

You could have the existing inlays taken out and have new, bigger inlays made to cover the same positions the old ones were. If you wanted smaller inlays or if the inlays you wanted didn't cover the gap the old inlays left, you'd need to get a new fretboard. Also if the fretboard is maple or a similar wood which has a finish applied to the fretboard itself, you'll need to have the neck refinished.

Generally, it's not really worth it unless you've got money to burn, it's a set or neck-thru guitar, and it is a particularly nice guitar and you take it to a well experienced luthier. If it's anything else (especially if it's a bolt-on or not a high-quality guitar to begin with) then you'll save money by just buying a new neck or perhaps even just a whole new guitar, depending on the complexity of the new inlays you want.


tl;dr: it's not impossible, but it's something only a skilled luthier should try doing, and most of the time it's financially not worth it compared to just buying a new neck/guitar.
Yes, I know everything. No, I can't play worth a damn.

If you pay to have it done expect it to cost some serious cash. And there is a pretty steep learning curve if you want to do it yourself. And the expense of some proper tools. Something like block inlays your probably going to have to pull the frets to be able to sand the fret board for em to fit right.

Yes, it's possible, but it's gonna be expensive if you don't want to do it yourself, and there's a good chance of ****ing up if you want to do it yourself

This. You cant justify buying a bunch of inlay tools, for just one neck, Plus, It's not that easy of a task at all.
