Where to place dot markers
May 10th, 2007 at 5:39am
 
The instruction say dot markers should be placed at 5, 7, 10, 12th positions.  I assume the 12th fret will have two dots. That makes a total of 5 dots.  Six come in the package.  Where does the sixth go? At the 15th fret? Thanks

A lot of people put a dot at the 3rd fret.

likeke....hoo da questions eh!


as far as the dots....main thing to remember is that no copy the dots on a guitar!!!!   difference on a guitar and ukulele is that the guitar has a dot on the 9th fret...us ukers place it on the 10th.

usually the norm is 5. 7 . 10. 12.....actually some players find it amusing that some builders place a dot on the 3rd fret...the thinking is: wot no can count to tree!


You are the builder so have at it!   laters ukeman
