    Why go through all the trouble of building a nice guitar, only to take the micky mouse route on posistion markers.

    Good point...

    I was thinking more of putting them on a premade guitar as sort of a dress up.

    I could understand putting them on cheaper guitars as a dress up thing. Kind of like a new pickguard, cool knobs, or shiny hardware.

    But I wouldn't look upon them favorably in new construction.

    Just my opinion.

    I saw a set on a friend's guitar here in Holland. I thought they were real and complimented him on the lovely inlay. He had something like the "Tree of Life" on that website. Of course you wouldn't put this on a $1000 guitar, but you could sure dress up some less-expensive models. For 20 bucks! and easily removaeable too if you change your mind later.

    To each their own.

    Not my thing.

    The stick-on Skunk Stripes some guy was selling a few years ago.

    To me it's like temporary tattoos - fun but kind of dishonest and upon close inspection, cheap looking. I worked in a hospital maintenance dept. and my boss always said "If you don't have time to do it right, you don't have time to do it again."
