Is there stickers you can put on your inlays?

OK I just saw some pictures of the band Ghoul and the second guitarist has 666 and an inverted cross on his Ibanez frets. Now I doubt he would pay all that money to get those on his frets.

So I was wondering are there stickers or something you can put on your frets that don't mess up the sound and just look like inlays?

He probably did get inlays, with stickers id assum if you bent a string it would catch a corner and rip.

Not neccesary, if you put some transparent tape on the stiker and it has the same long and wide of the fret

I know a guy who has some tape in that way on his bass, and it is not uncofortable, is a bit shitty way to do it, but cheaper than a custom inlay con your fretboard

There are sticker inlays. I've seen them somewhere online before. I guess they would work just fine, because your strings never touch the fretboard ( or shouldn't ), only the fret crowns. You finger tips might accidently peal a sticker up off the fretboard though.

Why don't you just get a fine permanent marker and draw them in?

There are no good pictures of it. But does any body have any links or knows anyone that sells them?

Here is the best one I can find. It's not the guitar of the lead vocalist. You can see it over in the left hand side of the photo, by the marshal.

Thats beyond the grasp of some people...

As for the inlays (if they are) it needent cost much money if you know someone who does it, and the ame goes for stickers, he may know a guy who can make them at work or something, so you may not be able to find them commercially.

I doubt it, people have very personal tastes about their guitars, I don't think a huge amount of people would want inverted crosses or 666 stickers on their fretboard (I know I wouldn't, it's just a little tacky) and so I can't see it being very viable commercially.

You know what'd be kickass? A website that'll make the stickers custom for you. Could bring in a lot of money for the owner, too. Somebody should do that.

gsrguitars, based in the uk did. they did all sorts of guitar customisations and employed proper artists who created stuff from just stickers to proper paint jobs.

they also did fret lights and custom inlays i believe.

they went under through lack of sales.
