    Default Neck Illusions - Starry Night

    Below is my concert Flea with "Starry Night" Neck Illusions. When I had the black plastic fretboard with black frets, I painted the frets white. That won't be necessary now because the black would show up against the blue, so I might remove the paint. I had a choice of fret marker dots or not, and I chose not to have them.

    My Neck Illusions arrived in two days ($18.10 delivered), and placing the sticky pieces on the fretboard was a snap - just peel and stick. The sizing is absolutely perfect, although he didn't allow for the zero fret, which was easy to correct. I'll have to tell him about that.

    He has many designs to choose from for both guitar and uke, and I'm sure he could print a guitar design on a strip for a uke neck. He can even print a custom design if you send him one.

    Cool! I kinda want to try this but not sure what fingerboard I want to cover up. Flea would be a good choice but I'm not sure it is staying long term so I dunno. Hmm.

    That's fun.
    I don't want to live in a world that is linear.

    I just want everyone to understand that I am not a ukulele expert, even though it may look at times like I'm pretending to be.

    They're advertised as being easy to remove, but I don't want to try it.

    That looks absolutely brilliant Jerry. I love it.

    Burnish them down good.

    It won't go through, but glue won't stick to oil. The suggest you clean the fretboard first.
