Changing, modding those lame plain dot markers..?

I am not planning to do it myself..
But..i just hate those typical dot markers..
So..what are the options available..

1 Is there a way to pull them out and fill the holes with something, so it doesn't look bad..?

2 Or maybe expanding them in some other form..i dunno..a block..or anything other than a plain dot..

3 Any other options...ideas?

4 Is this an expensive operation..?

I am planning to do it on cheaper prs style guitar with rosewood fingerboard..
Any help highly apreciated!

Thank you!

Re: Changing, modding those lame plain dot markers..?

It can be done, but by the looks of it, is pretty tricky to get perfect.
Some info here > http://www.projectguitar.com/tut/tutorial4.htm

I definatly dont have the skill to do it, but I am going to try it at some stage anyway, I bought some acryllic pyramid inlays off **** to try. First on a really cheap or broken neck, then a proper one.

Re: Changing, modding those lame plain dot markers..?

Thanx for the replies, guys..afterschock..that is a nice idea..
But, in my case..i am just trying to somehow hide those stupid dots with some other form..
Would this be an expensive mod..?
I guess it needs removing existing inlays..than, the board needs to be drilled, so that the new inlays can fit properly..?
Any other ideas about the form of the inlays..?
It needs to be large enough to cover the space where dot was installed..and it cannot be complicated..so that can be cheap..
Thanx
