Inlay sites?
 
anyone know any? ebay produces no results anyways. I am looking for a set of shark fin inlays, and ive found one site; http://www.luthiersupply.com/fretinlaypage.html

its $48 though... was just wondering if anyone knew of anywhere cheaper, or if thats roughly standard price and what not.

Is that site 'for real'? Most of the stuff on it looks like really bad stickers you'd see on BMXs

:stoned:

damn, I love you

cheers man! Im torn between Ibanez style or Jackson.

Edit; Got some ibanez ones. The conversion rate is cheap at the moment! Better than I remember, 21 dollars came to 11 quid. Nice.

Now to figure out how to fit these. Might involve a job for the old man :cool:

i liked the cloud ones.

but yeah.... how does inlaying work?

ImBored 2006-05-24 22:11

when I find out Ill let you know :p

when I tried taking some off another guitar, if i remember rightly they were sort of inset in to the wood.Im guessing thats the way, but hopefully someone knows more about it than me. Im going to look at some of my old guitars when I go home though, and see how its done.

well. obviously wood needs to be cut out of the fret board to accomodate the inlay.

But for complicated things like the Vine of life. how is the wood cut away accurately?
