Does what it is supposed to. Dots are pretty thick but quite sturdy. Came with a green led light that doesn't charge the dots very well. I keep a 3 white led flashlight clipped to my strap, 3 seconds per dot lasts about 2 hours of stage time. Perfect for playing on super dark stages if you have trouble seeing your side dots.

I use these on my bass guitars because the fret markers on the side of the neck are too small to see even in normal light, let alone on a darkened stage. I tape over the fret markers so its smooth and the fret markers are protected from me knocking them off... and I still have the light charger from a few years ago which comes in handy if the bass has been in its case all day and the markers aren't
charged. If I remember correctly, they are charging the same price now as they did when they sent you the whole "kit" along with instructions. They send a couple different sizes of stickers, the smaller ones supposedly to put directly on the fretboard, but I use them all as side markers... as long as they're glowing it really doesn't matter how big they are... you can still see them in the dark. As long as you put clear tape over them and remember to leave your guitar out of its case so they'll charge off of residual light (since they don't include the charger) these will work as they should. They really help to see where you are on your instrument in the dark.
Several years ago, these were sold with a mini light that would "charge" the markers before going on stage. They also included a small roll of clear tape to tape over the markers so your hand wouldn't knock them off of the side of the guitar, and a piece of velcro to stick the light/charger on the back of your headstock so it was always handy. Why they no longer include the tape and the charger is beyond me... especially since all they send you now is just the glow-in-the-dark stickers and no instructions for the same price.
I guess they're decent quality... but they're just glow-in-the-dark stickers.
For me, these stickers are of great value because I can now see where I am on the fretboard
in the dark. I only use them on the side of the fretboard with clear tape over them... and I use one long length of tape for the whole side of the fretboard. That way the tape ends won't curl up after you run your hand over them a few times. It takes a little work to line it up correctly and to keep the tape from overlapping and getting lumpy... but for me its worth it. I can't really see the little paint dots
that are on the side of the neck, so I place these over them, tape them down and hit them with the charger (or leave the guitar next to a lamp or something so they'll charge).

                Does what it is supposed to. Dots are pretty thick but quite sturdy. Came with a green led light that doesn't charge the dots very well. I keep a 3 white led flashlight clipped to my strap, 3 seconds per dot lasts about 2 hours of stage time. Perfect for playing on super dark stages if you have trouble seeing your side dots.

                They're just little stick on dots, I have yet to see them actually glow in the dars but for my purposes, they seem to work fine, so far
