Ok here's my question:
I'd like to know how Rickenbacker installs the red dots on the side of the neck binding.
I'm very novice with this sort of thing, I never really thought about how the red dots got there in the first place, lol...

Someone was saying that they can see red tubes under the pearloid fret markers on the 360/12C63.

Also someone said that the same tubes can be seen through the markers on George Harrison's 360/12OS.
If that's true is there a good pic of George's guitar where you can see this?

I'm looking at new C63's and I can't see anything

The side fret markers are actually bits of plastic rod that are inserted into holes. And yes, you can see the fret markers through the pearloid on the face of the neck with many 360/12C63's.

A 1/16th inch or .060 drill bit is used to drill the holes in the side of the neck binding, then the .065 plastic rod is inserted into the hole, tapped in with a small hammer,cut off then sanded flat to match the binding, quite simple once you know how it's done.

I know of a couple of original '63s nearby that have red side marker dots, I'll look at them when I can and see if you can see the dots thru the inlays on those guitars.
