do fretboard inlays have any effect on my performance?
the feel or sound?
if i scrape the string across the fret with an inlay does it change the feel?
i wonder how different grid systems/inlay placements have shaped my perception
dots help achieve a mapping.
and if it affects playing and placement, and thinking
it affects creativity.
the 3 5 7 9 12 inlay grid system seems arbitrary.
i have seen a guitar design that has only one inlay on the 2nd fret, and another on the 12th fret. that is so perplexing.
if i design a guitar — i might follow that approach.
some guitar necks have the dots on the sides
some (rick toone) have engraved dots that i can actually feel.
