    As DougM mentioned, tall-narrow frets on the American Professional line and jumbo frets on the American Performer. Probably, medium-jumbo frets would be my preference.

    The jumbos took some getting used to at first, but I now like them and the narrow tall ones even more than medium jumbos.

    I have Jumbo frets on my American Special Stratocaster and I love them and the nice heavy-rolled neck

    There's not a whole lot of difference in the Am Special and Performer, other than the Yosemite pickups instead of Texas Specials, and the pull pot on the 2nd tone control, to add the neck pickup to the bridge and bridge and middle positions. I used to have both the SSS and HSS versions of the Am Special. But, I never had a maple neck one, 'cause I prefer rosewood. From what I can recall of the Am Special, the Performer neck is a bit thinner front to back too

    I’m a Rosewood guy also, but the neck on my American Special really is nice.

    Of all the colors they had for that series, sonic gray was my favorite. Looks so classy with a rosewood fretboard.

    Sonic Grey is not a colour I was familiar with. It is one I will be looking for in the shops, to see one in person, because I think I like it a lot.

    Great color combo. Very commanding and stately.
