Luminlay Introduces Vintage Series Fluorescent Position Markers

Luminlay Vintage Blue Series Fluorescent Position MarkersLuminlay has introduced the Vintage Series of their luminescent position markers. Designed for on top of the fingerboard, the new inlays have a subtler color tone similar to maple and blend in better with vintage-style fingerboards, rather than most fluorescent materials that have a greenish tint. The inlays take place of your existing markers, and when activated, the dots shine green or blue for better visibility in the dark.

As with the rest of Luminlay’s products, the dot inlays are made of a highly luminous material that is charged in seconds by an LED flashlight. The glowing inlays act as an alternative to LED lights installed in the fingerboard, which would require a battery.

Luminlay’s Vintage Series Position Markers come in several diameters. Each set of 12 pieces goes for around $35. For more info, check out the Luminlay website.

Luminlay Vintage Series Fluorescent Position Markers:

  • Vintage Blue or Vintage Green Colors
  • Creme/Beige Color When Not Activated To Blend with Fingerboard
  • Charged by LED
  • No Batteries Required
  • Set of 12 Pieces

  1. or you could take glow nail polish to it with a fine paintbrush.

  2. or get a sheet of ceiling stickers, with the planets, and stars, and use the dots stickers and do the same thing for 4 bucks. I have them covering the black position markers on my bass, and have had them there for about a year, still work.

  3. who the hell wants star stickers on their fretboard? ha ha ha.

    • Not the stars, the “dots”, if you play with proper technique, you shouldn’t even touch the fret board, just the frets. The person that wants fluorescent fret dots is looking for the same thing, but if you were to use dots from a sticker sheet, you can achieve the same effect for less than a quarter of the price.

  4. While I haven’t tried the ceiling stickers (although the thought does bring me back to childhood!), I have tried other products. I play in pits (very dark at times, except for the music stand light, and that doesn’t help much with seeing anything except the music), and have been experimenting for some time. The best so far: luminous paint from a hobby store. One small drop on top of the regular position marker, a brief shine with any flashlight, and I’m good to go for a while. And it’s easily taken off should I decide to do so. But the shine doesn’t last very long. Has anyone had experience with this product?
