Regarding position markers. Purists tend away from them, but a few
years ago I read an interview with Edgar Meyers. The interviewer said,
"Edgar, you're one of the premier players in the musical world. Why do
you use position markers?" Edgar replied, "This instrument is a beast..
Anything that makes it easier to play I'm going to employ."
The Steinberger appears to have dot markers on the front of the
fingerboard from about the 12th 'fret' upwards, which looks weird from
the front, but makes so much more sense than spots on the side.
I've been thinking of putting some on mine.

Derek (and everyone else),
If you're going to put position markers on any bass, I'd suggest
something I've seen online (but haven't seen in person - I just love
the idea). Luminous markers. You shine a light on them for a minute
and they remain glowing for quite a while. I've played in enough dark
situations (like in a pit before the lights are up; sometimes the
"pit" isn't a pit, but a section of the auditorium which is roped off
and DARK) that this would be a great advantage. In fact, I'm thinking
of replacing some position markers on some of my basses with these.
And while we're at it: does anyone have experience with this kind of
I use them, though I haven't had a reason to need the glow-in-the-dark
part. A guy on ebay sells them in various shapes and sizes. A dime
bag full is two or three dollars.
