    Hey i was looking at the warwick Steamer Stage 2 and noticed that warwick added the mother of pearl inlays. I have a warwick corvette and i would love to add these to my bass. i have seen some of them for sale pretty cheap on ebay but i want to make sure i get the right ones before i put them on my bass. Can anyone give me some links to the right ones that i want on my bass. Also how should i go about glueing them to my bass. what kinda glue? thanks

    also my rockbass warwick corvette doesnt have any fret dots so does that mean i have to make holes for them to fit into? or can i just glue them right on the fret board.

    Your key term here is "inlay" as in laid into the wood. Lotsa routing invloved. Try searching for a how to or DIY. There was a company selling stick ons, try looking for those if you'd like.
