    I decided to add the double dots and inlay a rectangle from the Koa wood used for the body. I may wood burn some design or initials on it.

    Now that that's out of the way, have you thought about a nice Polka Dot paint job :D

    That koa inlay was a great idea...and as you note, a perfect place for some kind of "mark". Gold frets are going to be stand-out, too!

    It’s the Great Wall between the fret people and the bridge people.

    Is it too late to vote for a dot between every fret? :cool:

    add 2 more frets, it will make counting impossible for any but the most robust enthusiast, who by the time he gets to 26 will most likely have noticed some shiny object and his attention sufficiently drifted to let your blunder, remain unnoticed. Make sure you put shiny knobs on the guitar..

    Leave it be and don't worry about it. It never mattered to me where the dots above 15 were until I started playing jazz and needed to know for sure where C on the E string is. I learned to find it and don't think about it any more. You want to play a D? It's just one fret above C# where you placed your marker. The idea of position markers is to help you know where you are on the neck. If you have a marker at 23 and you know that's where to find C# you're good to go.
