    Just noticed my Fernandez is missing a side dot marker. What's an easy fix?

    Well you can buy that plastic material, glue it in, cut it off and lightly sand.

    Just put a dab of white silicone in there....you'll probably sell it before the stuff dries ;);)!

    Baking powder and superglue in the hole. Lightly sand. Instant fix with common household products.

    .

    Drill out all the other side dots and install glow in the dark side dots.

    jvin248, I completely agree. I HATE that the side dots are half on and half off the maple neck. I can't see them on a dark stage (hopefully, that an issue again soon). So on all my rosewood board strats, I have the Luminlay dots with the dark border. I can see them in any lighting situation. Huge improvement.
