|Dot Neck noun \ˈdät ˈnek\
00:37A fretted instrument neck with a simple inlay pattern of dots at the conventional fret positions is often referred to as a "Dot Neck." This is more of an electric guitar term, but it applies equally well to acoustic instruments.
A Dot Neck's simple pattern marks the significant frets (e.g., guitar frets 3, 5, 7, 9, 12, 15 and 17).
The term "Dot Neck" is also used by collectors to distinguish the instrument from other inlay patterns, such as rectangular blocks, that may characterize a different production series of a similar model.
