FK, I'd be keen to hear what he says, I just did 2 Gibson style necks with Jumbo fretwire with wide crown tops, and the guy for who I did them - he's LP from the mid 80's (which plays really nice and comfy) has flat/ wide fret tops.Ua, I see lots of old Gibsons with really wide flat fret crowns, they really do have a school bus shape to them. They seem to play just fine, I've never tried to get that shape when I'm dressing frets. I think Earlewine talks about that in his book on guitar repair - my copy is in my shop and its too cold to go get it. I'll check and see what he says.
