Yeah, but even Steve Lynch's Charvel in the video for Turn Up the Radio had dot inlays.
I'm all for having no inlays. Violinists, cellists and classical guitarists don't need them... why are electric guitarists so crippled without dots/blocks/vines/birds/whatever? I think most people just stare at their fretboards too much and then come to rely on them far too much. I built myself a guitar with tiny offset dots, and realized i used the side dots more than anything. Then i got my Parker with no face dots at all, and realized it didn't impact my playing at all.
Ibanez, lose the shark's teeth and all the other gaudy, ugly inlays. If you need to put dots on there, put small offset abalone dots, not giant plastic pearloid hideous things.
