Lovely tight flame on that one.  Such a cool process seeing it come together in pictures.

I hate when I can't see the dots on a dark stage.

I had to look up Luminlay.  The idea is long overdue.  It should have been another Hamer "first."  The tritium night sites for guns could have been adapted for side dots on guitars.

Once those Luminlay inlays are charged they are very bright.  An effective idea for a gigging musician.

Ernie Ball had picks made out of something other than tortoise shell celluloid so musicians could find their picks when they dropped them on a dark stage.  That was over 50 years ago.  You would think that someone would have come up with Luminlay years ago.

I have glow in the dark V-Picks.  They work really well.  But I can't get used to them.  I'm a Jazz III kind of guy.  So, I tape five or six to my mic stand like some other guy that likes Hamers!

I turned out the lights in the shop to see how well the luminlay dots worked.  They're  a lot brighter than I thought they'd be.  Pretty cool.

I'd need them numbered.

I'll go way out on a limb and predict a spike in glowing dots on future orders.

I wouldn't recommend trying to find other stuff in the dark with a Luminlay-equipped guitar, though!  ;):lol:

I agree!!

Mike, regarding the light laying on the bench. Are you leaving that there during sanding to 'side light' the project and see the contours better? Or is it just there for the photos? Thanks, Dave

With luminlay side and fret markers you'd be ready for any situation.

Both -   It helps with taking pictures and also dialing in the carve when sanding.
