It IS nice looking, but you CAN feel it on a fretboard. With 6100s or similar frets it may not be an issue, but with mediums I didn't like being able to feel them, so I had them inlaid in shallow routs. This looked very good. But... I don't know if light sanding was done after installation, but I wore through a couple of them to where you could slightly see (and feel) the black sticky backing. i doubt sanding was done, so I would consider these as semi-disposable. As it is, I covered a few with a layer of cyanoacrylate, so they're OK for now.
