I am in love with my '52 AVRI from Wildwood. It has a roasted maple neck. Quite thick, which I quite enjoy. Actually, it is a dream guitar. I feel horrible to say this but I feel I am not as quite in love as I could be! This is my first guitar with jumbo frets. And after 30 days of rock solid playing this thing I can honestly say I love everything about her except for the fact I feel the frets are just a little too high. Please don't tell her. Her feelings would be crushed. Anyway ... I am not new to guitar playing ... but I am definitely new to new gear. Long story that. But, for those seasoned experts out there...this guitar has 6105 frets (modern narrow and tall according to Fender site). The problem is, I purchased a used 2008 Eric Johnson Strat the first week of Feb, which has super lower fret size compared to my new Tele. So let me come out and ask ... if I strongly, strongly suspect that I would be further in love with my new Tele if it has slightly lower frets .... what are the risks? I wouldn't want them necessarily as low as the EJ Strat (medium jumbo) but definitely lower than the existing .055 height. Perhaps a .040/.045 height???? And what would it do to the gorgeous resonance and sustain this thing currently has? Let's say I had a local luthier shave the frets down to .040/.045 and I don't like it? Also ... maybe the frets simply need a nice (re)crown job...not a 'lowering' job, but just a 'smoothing' job? (Sorry for not using the proper lingo) It's just that the fret wires feel so 'sharp'. Not exactly like railroad ties, well, maybe ... but perhaps like speed bumps that are not rounded down. And they just feel so RECTANGULAR in feel. That is why I suggest a (re)crown job just to shave it down to a nicer smoothness, and maybe it's not the height that bothers me but the shape? I am not looking to act immediately, just soliciting some feedback. I am new to this forum as of mid-May and I have to say I am floored by the expertise and willingness to suggest your advice. I am not saying this so I can further my chances of getting some quick help. It should be said how amazing that most, if not all, of you are at sharing your knowledge, it's really awesome to witness in action. And another thing! Probably left for another thread, but why is fret size so confusing??? Jumbo, medium jumbo, vintage ... Fender vs Warmoth .... I find the actual measurement size of these to be so arbitrary that it is confusing! But I am just venting now. Ok thank you.
