The general rest of this thread seems to know it right.
It's definitely possible, but it's extremely hard.
Main gear (For complete list, see profile):
Epiphone Les Paul Standard Plain-top
Basswood Telecaster, 2 single-sized HB's, both split.
Epiphone Valve Junior
B-52 AT-412 Cabinet
Oh, and I have a Squier VM Jazz Bass too.

If you want to get it done, I would take it to someone that specializes in inlaying, but I wouldn't try it yourself.

I'd imagine it similar to defretting a guitar, but much more delicate. Try getting a new custom neck if you're guitar's a bolt on neck. Otherwise, you probably shouldn't try it yourself, unless it's a really cheap hunk of wood.

well, if its a strat, then you can order a dot set from stewmac or something, and drill out your old dots. thats not too hard, just be real steady, dont go too deep, and make sure your drill bit is thge correct size of the new dot, and are completely centered on the old ones. then you are oing to need to sand them flush, then probably re-radius your fingerboard, which would require you to have to refret your guitar.

thanks everyone. i saw a video of a guy doing it on youtube and it got me thinking...but itd probably just be better to get a custom neck at some point

you can, the only restriction is your new inlays must cover up the old

It can be done. This guitar had to have the wood replaced in sections because PRS decided to move the dots at the 12th to stop people adding birds
If you get a pro to do it, you'll be up for a refret as well. Expensive.
