Thanks Kevin. I looked at those but they seem to be decorative - everything from swords to skulls - but I couldn't see any simple lines to stick onto the fretboard?

Good point Mr Powers. I've ordered some 3mm in white but the idea of writing note names is great. I'll get some 6mm as well...

Swords and skulls,.....who could ask for anything more?
Eheh....
I swear they had some tortoise shell linears but I could be mistaken. I put some Irish crosses on my graphite Stick.....they're pretty swag.
Prior to that I did use the automotive pinstripe which actually worked very well, and it comes in different colours too, although I used white against the black graphite.

Cheers,
Mary Eaubrutha

My first Stick was an older one with the inlay dots all the way to one side, not centered. I went the fretboard tape route for a while because of that.
I ended up buying some from a site dedicated to stringed instruments and their accessories, but it was almost 5 years ago and I'm hanged if I can remember its name. But try The Woodwind and Brasswind to start; if not there HAVE to be a lot more sites dedicated to band/orchestral instruments.

Anyone tried Brother 'Label Maker' tape?
You can use the Label Maker to print your notes.
