I'm leaning towards synth bass for jamming with some people, and I was flipping through the November 2002 Bass Player, and ended up reading the article about Edgar Meyer. I was intrigued by the pictures, and the fact that he had boxwood position dots fitted into the fingerboard on his 1769 Gabrielli. As a slab player, I find this midification rather... almost necessary if you will. I get lost without any sorth of guides, why not add face dots? Question is, where are they placed? Is it basically the equivalent position of 3, 5, 7, 9 and 12 frets? etc? or what? I find it to be quite interesting.
