U must be HIGH! Oh yes, i understand!
Wide or narrow don't make me no never mind, as long as they're pretty tall!
In 40 years of refretting guitars, i have always offered my customers several choices of fret size-BUT BE CAREFUL! You may find it a mistake offering the wrong size fret to many customers. Many country players prefer a vintage style fret, & many metal-heads require a big fret as intonation isnt as critical to them!!
It's my first Tele from about ten years ago, got it real cheap on a going-out-of-business sale. Took me about a week to adjust the finger pressure.
It's an interesting debate, but I would say that if you are after better intonation, fret size is way down the list of things to worry about. Frets are what gets in the way of perfectly intonated notes!
+1 on the Earvana nut.
We put Medium / Jumbo's per customers request in this Telecaster Custom. Radius fret board to 7.5"/10"/12". He likes them for bending..
Skinny frets wear out my strings in just a few hours.
I find I need to pick harder, the shorter the string is to attain the same volume, and because I'm picking harder, I need to press the strings down better so they don't slip or flat out. Nothing sucks like missing a note in a solo cause the string didn't ring out. Always wanted to try a scalloped fretboard just to see if were compatible.
its easier to replace strings than frets. you'd likely prefer strings wearing to the alternative.
