    They are just stickers, why would they be for one instrument and not the other?

    Maybe because of the different scale length the stickers have different sizes ?

    Sure but even at that, they would just look a bit narrow, nothing to make them "not work". :)

    That's true ;)
    I think the other way may cause problems, by contrast. Or not, depending on the type of inlay.. hum :meh:

    I have a MIM fretless with lines but no inlay dots. Can anyone recommend inlay dot stickers that look decent? I've found a bunch online but I don't wanna order something that's gonna look trashy.

    Are the ones you want not available for bass? What are you looking for?

    They will be fine. Although, I like the no dot look on a fretless.

    Yah? I think it looks ok with no dots, but I like the look with lines and dots. Like Juan Alderete's fretless:

    Thinking out loud. i haven't played much fretless. The stickers are no big deal on a fretted bass because the string is hitting the fret, not necessarily the fretboard. Wouldn't the sticker be way more likely to cause problems as you slide past a sticker?

    They'd be inbetween the strings. A heavy bend would take the string over the sticker, but I rarely bend on fretted, let alone the fretless.
