dot inlays

Postby (smashprod) » Mon Feb 06, 2012 9:45 am

I've got a D-16 (probably 50s; brown painted metal body, molded Bakelite necks) and am getting it in good playing shape. Jason Lollar did a wonderful job repairing one of the pickups. There are a few missing dot inlays and I'd like to order some from Stew-Mac to replace them. Does anyone know what size they are?

They are the 13/64" size, and will most likely require a little filing around the circumference to fit in.

PS: I've heard Jerry Byrd recommended typewriter correction fluid. It does sound much easier.
