    Just curious, does everyone that plays both electric and acoustic like to have the same size frets on both for consistency? If not, how do they differ? Why?

    Not that particular about those differences, more differences in how the necks are carved.

    I don't like vintage frets on my electrics but I play a dred with small frets that plays fine. Might be due to the heavier string gauge, slightly higher action and a bit less bending on the acoustic.

    Nope. Depends on the guitar. If the frets don't feel right on the neck, I'm not interested. Makes me nervous when shopping for less common in person stuff, like resonators, but me hands like what theys like...
