Just like you said about the speed bump effect. If I played only Jumbo frets I might be able to get used to them but switching back and forth from other guitars screws me up with my touch and technique. Quite honestly I don’t understand Fender’s reasoning in only offering these type of frets. Do the the majority of players prefer them?
That's darn close to stock vintage Fender replacement size 6105. (095 x 047?) Should be fine. I prefer the medium 6150 that are just a bit wider, about .047 x .104The 6125 (0.095" width x 0.047" height) seems to have gained a lot of interest. I've not had a chance to try/play them. Anyone have or like them?
Isn't it funny how that works? My first guitar, which was my only guitar for the first 10 years I played had a skinny, flat neck with big frets. I played the crap out of it and never even thought about how the neck played or felt. But earlier this year I pulled it out from under the bed and used it at band practice. I hated it and had to switch back to one of my other guitars after two songs. I probably could get use to it if I had to, but I don't want to.PS, I remember the days when I could only afford cheap hard to play guitars. I think each of us, given time, can get used to anything if we have to.
I swear the chart I was looking at today had narrow and tall at .55 high.That's darn close to stock vintage Fender replacement size 6105. (095 x 047?) Should be fine. I prefer the medium 6150 that are just a bit wider, about .047 x .104
I cant stand tall frets though like 055-059. I can hardly even play with them. If ordering something, watch out for different sizes with the same fret number though! View attachment 958717
Yes, that is correct. What Fender calls "Narrow Tall" 6105 fret wire is indeed .55" H x .95" W. That chart above has an error on it for the 6105 size, at least if they are referring to the Fender "Narrow Tall".I swear the chart I was looking at today had narrow and tall at .55 high.
I love the tall narrow frets on my Tele and it's the main reason why I have an American Pro II.Can someone please give their perspective on the new American Professional Tele’s with the tall narrow frets compared to the medium jumbo? I’ve played Tele’s with jumbos and don’t like them. Can I expect the same with the tall narrow frets? I haven’t had a chance to play any of the newer Tele’s to see for myself. Thanks
One thing Id like to piggy back on this statement. Ive played a crap ton of guitars in the last few days. A LOT of new fenders, squiers, a few epiphones. a bunch of used stuff of same brands and a few other oddballs. All the classic vibe new on the shelf and even Fenders to a degree are annoying to test. they put on 9s on everything and i play 11s. I knew i would struggle with trying these out but i was like playing like as light as a butterfly in my mind and most of the classic vibes go sharp if a butterfly flew by. vinteras have vintage and its a bit better. but 9s??? man.A trip to guitar store will let you test both styles
