    Question JP15 owners: side dots hard to see?

    Hey all!

    I love my JP15 to absolute pieces, I have not been able to put it down since I got it. I do have one super minor issue: black dot side markers on a roasted neck = I can't see anything! lol

    Has anyone replaced these inlays or come up with a clever solution?

    I'm considering just removing them myself and replacing them with Luminlay, but if anyone has a better suggestion, I'm all ears.

    Guthrie Govan said that, when touring with Steven Wilson, he had to play on completely dark stages with keyboard leds around him, and he had a hard time visualizing the fretboard inlays. He addressed that when designing his Charvel signature, with dot inlays that are white with a black circle around them. I believe it can give you some ideas to custom your JP15.

    He discusses this decisions at 1:44 here:
