Does anybody have any experience with Vinyl Decal Inlays? I encountered some 'dotbuster' ones that basically cover the plain fret markers, and I was wondering if they get in your way, or leave any kind of residue on the neck if you get rid of them, if they fall off on their own, etc. Anybody have any experience with these, I would appreciate your input.

i dont see any good coming out of that.

as long as there are side dots, i sure as hell wouldnt stick anything to my fretboard.

i am sure there would be some form of film left and make a mess of thing.

part of learming guitar is learing where to find the frets, just like piano finding the keys.

i would be hard pressed to think that a gigging mucician would be looking at the dots/markers on the fretboard, they however would watch the side dots if needed to change positions.

so in short form NO.

It should be fine if you plan on keeping the guitar forever and never wanting to take the decals off.

Re-selling is a big no, no with those on.

For cosmetic reasons they can be beneficial, but for any other purpose why bother? If you want a guitar with block inlays buy a guitar with block inlays, or if you want a guitar with skull and crossbone inlays, buy a KH-2.

No, these aren't to tell you where the frets are, it is just a cosmetic thing.

i bought a set as a goof.
from a company i now cant remember.

they go on and off no issue, no residue.
and they dont get in the way.

dont know if they are all made the same.
but these were cheap and looked fine.

also my board is maple, so there was a finish to it,
may have assisted in the removal process.
