I am now installing Luminlay side dots on guitar and bass necks. This is a revolutionary product that will ensure you can see the side dots on the neck in poorly lit situations. It is available in various sizes from 2mm to 5mm diameter. You can also purchase an LED lamp to charge the Luminlay. Shine the lamp on the dots for a few seconds and they will emit light for between 20-30 minutes. If the stage you are on has lighting, the lighting will charge the inlays for you while you play.
The charge for installing Luminlay: from €40 per neck.
Luminlay charging LED lamp: € 8 each.
Guitar setup: from €40
Bass setup: from €50 (depends on string configuration)
New bone or Tusq nut made to suit your guitar: €35
Fret level and re-crown followed by polishing to high shine: from €65 (depends on number of frets and width of frets, e.g. a six string bass will have wider frets than a six string guitar)
Re-fretting: from €10 each.
Full re-fret from €120 for nickel/ silver fretwire, €150 for stainless steel fretwire (depends on number of frets and width of frets, e.g. a six string bass will have wider frets than a six string guitar)
