Re: Dot Inlay Color

get a local guitar luthier to do it for you, mine does,he changes the inlays by drilling the old ones out, or you could try dying them as ive seen others do before.
thinking about having some of mive drilled out and swapped for green dots on my 1527

Re: Dot Inlay Color

My advice would be if you dont know how to do it already dont do it yourself, have a luthier do it to avoid possible messing up your neck permantely. But, if you are a diehard DIYer, try drilling them out carefully and then just replacing them as golem suggested
