So long as there were dots along the top of the neck, I personally wouldn't pay $120 for inlays on the front. I would prefer to see where my fingers are going, though =P

If they were the PRS birds, then yes.

For dots, no.

Well, I reckon it depends on the material, the shape and whether or not they've already been layed into the fretboard.

I rarely use the inlays for reference anyway. I practice with my eyes closed.

i saw these sick jade (block) inlays... $120 is still pretty steep... prob not... unless it's like a prs dragon kinda inlay
#10
Oh God, no!

I mean, having an awesome fretboard is cool and everything but £120!? I'd have an aneurism!

Not really. I hate inlays at the best of times, distracting buggers.

That said, while I wouldn't pay out for fretboard inlays, I'm happy to pay out top whack for good, purely decorative, headstock inlays.
#16
if they where trapazoid inlays on an Es- 335 then yes, if not no

you obviously want them so get 'em, otherwise you'll regret being cheap afterwards.

Not unless it's custom in which case I'll already be spending a fortune anyways.

On a $300 guitar, no.
On a $2000 guitar, yes

Agreed. Also $120 wouldn't be bad if it were, say PRS Birds or Jackson Sharkfins made of MOP.
#22
No, I wouldn't pay that much. Playing without inlays will probably be hard in the beginning, but you would get used to it.
#23
it depends on the guitar and the inlays that are put in, if it is just block or standard inlays, then no, if it is something way sick then yes
#24
I just want MOP block inlays, which don't cost that much

^I'd let a pro look at it. Once you get into the technicalities of screws...well, it's just a place you don't want to be, friend.
#25
I would pay for them only if the frets spelled out across the fretboard "I payed $120 for these inlays."

Also, they had damned better be in alabone.

yep, if it didnt, the guitar wouldnt be as cool
but they would have to be very sexy and albanone(sp)
#28
you know, the inlays would have to be like the most complex yet sick inlays ive ever seen

Id have the inlays be my face because im that fecking cool


Screw that. I would have them put one big inlay across the entire fretboard... you can guess what it would be of

You could have that too, if you miss out the spaces it's 24 letters :P

Edit: and no, I wouldn't, if the guitar had no marks to tell me where to go I'd just draw something on with a marker
#39
if they are really cool inlays and my guitar has dot inlay(which i don´t like very much) maybe
#40
Man people on this site are cheap. This is an expensive hobby if you are a gear head. For me an extra $120 isn't much when looking at guitar considering I just got a pedal that cost $120. My guess is most people here are kids who don't have any money and their parents don't give them much so I can see where $120 for inlays sounds expensive.
