Hey, i was scrounging through ebay yesterday. I came across a "store" that sold inlay stickers. They look really cool. And i had never heard of them before then. Has anyone had any experiences with that product? Does anyone have it on a guitar?

Thats what i was thinking. It says they wont get caught on your fingers when playing. But im thinking the strings will scratch them off. :\

I don't like stickers on my guitar, but a friend of mine put stickers over the inlays on his SG copy. They didn't really get in the way. As long as they remain stuck, it shouldn't cause any problems.

He's had them for years, doesn't look like they've ever come off. The thing is, it might be hard to stick them to a rosewood fretboard, especially if it's got a bit of grime on it. Make sure your 'board is clean before sticking.

I have them on a guitar and they work really well, they dont peel off if you bend and dont affect anything, its as if it was an actual inlay.

But Peel off the protective cover on them first before applying them, that protective layer will come off if you bend or something and its confusses you bad.

sounds like a bad idea

edit: they are targeted for noob guitarists that don't worry about the guitars playability

They dont affect the Guitar Playability, they are ment for a quick cheap job if you dont wanna spend the cash for new inlays being routed in (300-500 Bucks) or buying a new neck (Anywhere from 100-900 Bucks there depending on who and the specfics)

You can bend and everything with them and they stay in place. They just dont look as good cause 1). You probably are not measuring and centering it when you put them on and 2). Nothing beats a real mother of pearl inlay or abalone inlay.

Honestly If I could I would get the real inlays so they stay for longer and look better and are centered better, But if it was a cheap job I wanted done and a guitar then I would go for the Inlay Stickers.

ITT: people who havn't used them.

I in fact have the cross inlay stickers on my jackson, and they don't peel, they look awesome, and to people thinking "strings will scrape them off", the string doesnt touch that part of th fretboard, it touches the frets, they are very thin, and need practically a razorblade to get it off, they stay n for a VERY long time and how would stickers affect playing? It wouldn't end of. Even if they came off after like...3 years...it's only like 8 bucks to buy new ones. I'd say absolutly go for it, I don't regret getting mine in the least.

there's a store beside me that sells these things, most of their floor models have them equipped on the fret boards too. All i can say is that these don't really affect playing (unless you feel every little bevel in the string and bump in the wood), they look pretty cool and they are a pretty damn effective alternative to having a new inlay done on your guitar.

Make sure that they actually are the real deal though and not just an actual sticker as an actual sticker would screw your pretty little fret board up. The real ones are like 0.05mm or something abnormally thin like that i cant remember how thin exactly but meh
i reckon they are a good buy if your sick of the dots

I would put the Space Invaders ones on my classical guitars because it looks boring without anything on it

Are you talking about creative cuts? I tried them out and they started peeling at the edges much sooner that they say they would, but it didn't affect how I played it at all.
