About This Listing

Vintage Repro Emporium is proud to offer Era correct Reproduction  Inlay dots Referred to as "Clay Dots" that originally came on The PRE CBS slab board Stratocasters, Telecasters, Bass Models ect. From 1959-1964.

After extensive research and analysis of vintage clay dots ive reproduced these down to every last detail.
Correct Matrieals, Correct size and correct color.

Others offer dots that just look like the vintage clay dots,  even made out of aged clay or yellow plastic type matireal......but the real vintage fender fretboard dots were never made out of clay, They were in fact made out of "vulcanized fiberboard" And when New were  off white/cream in color, After some time the dots would turn into a clay like color hence why they were called "Clay Dots"

This set includes 10 Vulcanized Fiberbored fretboard inlay dots, And 10 side Dots.
They Measure exactly the same Size as the Vintage inlays which are as follows:

Fingerboard Dots:
1/4 inch (6.35mm) in diameter
.65 inch (1.5mm) Thick

Side dots:
3/32 inch (2.4mm) in diameter
.65 inch (1.5mm) thickness

Weather you are restoring a vintage instrument or building a vintage accurate reproduction these are the dots you are looking for.....These are the real deal!!!


.......and they will age beautifully just like the originals.

Thanks for looking
