These really look the business, and cover the plain old dots well (except on the 24th fret where some dot still visible. Follow instructions, acetone clean the application area. I have many guitars and have used Jockomo stickers many times. Best for me are the block type. My experience with bats (similar to these doves) was that string bending techniques will raise the edges and foul the string, so these birds will do the same if that is your blues/rock style of playing. I put a clear varnish over the sticker and very carefully around the edge keeping fretboard contact to 1-2mm around sticker to help seal it in, time will tell. For now it looks great.
