Quick little project: I added some glow-in-the-dark paint to the fret markers on my basses.

On a dimly lit stage, it’s often very difficult to quickly check your hand position on the neck of the bass guitar, especially when you are singing backing vocals and you can only look out of the corner of your eye.

In the past I’ve used little glowing-dot stickers, but they wear off rather quickly. This time I used some Glow-On paint. It’s designed to be used on gun sights, but it works great on guitars too. It only takes a few minutes in bright light to charge it for a gig — a flashlight (or cell phone light) works great as well.
