Dot Markers
« on: December 14, 2017, 05:05:08 AM »
Every Fly that I`ve seen, does not have fretboard dot markers...
There is one on Ebay which does have dot markers.  Was this done in just one year/period?

Do you ave a link? It could just be stickers. I put fake mother of pearl block fret markers on one of mine.

No. It could only have been done as a special order. Normally you don't want anything breaking up the carbon/epoxy surface. Maybe it was an owner modification, or maybe they're just decals.

I've always liked the no fret markers on the board look of Parkers.
I prefer to use the fret markers on the top of the neck since I never seem to be able to see the regular ones.
I bet those are stickers since machining CF is difficult at best.
