Clear inlays

Hey does anyone know where to get clear inlays? I am considering taking my inlays off my RG and replacing it with a clear inlay so that I can put Neon Green paper in the hole and cap it with clear. I checked steward MacDonald and they seem to only have colored,pearl,abalone etc.

Just buy some clear acrylic in the thickness you're looking for and punch or drill out some circles.

check eBay, there are a few luthier types on there that sell all kinds of inlay material, pre-cut or not, in MANY types of shell and colored plastic. if they dont have them for sale they may be able to make them for ya, some of them do custom work, maybe they can even make ya green dots so you dont have to go the cheap way! (no offence, ya know what i mean!)

DSTARSONG, Thanks I never thought of that I'll give it a look. How's the weather up there in Michigan? I'm originally from Northern Michigan. I've haven't been Ypsilanti in years.
