Yes, yes it will
TO = used for expressing motion or direction toward a point, person, place, or thing approached and reached, as opposed to from

TWO = the number 2

TOO = in addition; also; furthermore; to an excessive extent or degree

The noets etc wont be any harder physicaly to play :P

However you may have difficulty finding the notes, you could always stick some tape on the back of the neck or top of the neck to help you...

I don't think so...I actually wanna get one

for me at least, I'm at the point where I dont need to look at the frets or really at all to play...and if I do look its always just at the fret markers on the side of the neck, not actually on the frets

So I think you should be fine

There are fret markers on the side of the fretboard.
It's not really any different IMO.

i play on my classical, no inlays, only dots on the upper neck and am fine but i dont know about the electric...

it's actually a Washburn X50 Pro the guitar that i want

There's fret markers on the side, and I find that inlays are just there for the look. You shouldn't really play guitar on an angle, you should play it so that you can't see the fretboard.

Well, that's what I was taught in this DVD.

And it might take you a few days to get used to, but you'll be fine afterwards.

It will actually help your playing a lot.

Inlays are basically cosmetic but when you're teaching someone something and they're looking at where you're playing for a reference, it's easier for them to see what position you're in with fretboard markers!
Moving on.....

I bought a inlay-less guitar and it was fine. Took a coupla hours to get used t looking at the side of the neck and not the fretboard but that's about it. It feels no different now

Solos... probably, but if you've got side dots you should be alright.
I had a cheap crappy epi les paul for years, and had no inlays. Mind you I wasn't really soloing...

I try not to look at the fret board at all while playing. Helps train the ear as well as the hand. It's also more relaxing (for me). I noticed really good players rarely look at what they're doing. Hey, some are even blind. In 100 more years of training, I;'ll be pretty good (possibly).
#15
It's not going to make a blind bit of difference - nobody looks at the front of the fretboard when they're playing anyway.

Yeah i don't usually look at fretboard but you know, sometimes yes...i think i will be fine
#21
I almost always play standing up anyways, so it made like no difference to me
also Ive been playing since age 11 so my fingers kinda already know where to go
WONGA!

Not at all. I like it better actually. And if it's like most, you will have them marked on top, just in case...and if you have been playin 2.5 years, you should probably know where you are on the fretboard.
This ends now, eat the goddamn beans!

No!
My first guitar was an acoustic with only an inlay on the twelfth.

It really helps you out, and you have the dots on the side facing you while you are standing, so its all good

^This.

It's not hard to transition to using the side dot markers. Plus you learn to play without having to look at the neck all the time.

jeff healey never looked at the inlays...well he was blind...he made i far..
