I highly prefer 6230s, and a 7 1/4" radius on the board. That's what feels "just right" to me. I have Fender guitars without these things. On them, I compromised for some reason, e.g. price, or unique features. My 60th Anniversary Classic Lacquer Jazzmaster is an example. 9 1/2" radius, medium frets. But everything else about the guitar was right, it was only being made for one year, I was able to find a 7.5 lb. example (very light for a Jazzmaster), and it was only $1,000 delivered, brand new. If I really wanted to, I could replace the frets and add some more radius to the board during the process...and still not have much more into it than the original sticker price of $1,200. I have a new Lead II as well. 9 1/2" radius and medium frets. If I wanted a slime green Lead II with a maple board for only $450, then a compromise had to be made. I have several G&Ls with 9 1/2" radius and medium frets, a few with medium jumbos (yuck). Even have a few with a 12" radius. But there were other things about them, and the prices were right. The most expensive of them ($1,500 delivered) was a rare, limited edition model in nitrocellulose lacquer finish. Two others were the same (nitro models, one of which is a Rustic – my only "relic" guitar). Another was a one-of-a-kind factory prototype. The other was a to-spec build in like-new condition – beautiful bass for only $1,000. OTOTH, I decided not to purchase a 70th Anniversary Esquire because of the fret size (6105s). For $2,000, and talking about a guitar that can easily be assembled to my desired specs, and end up BETTER than the Fender, for less money...no. If the guitar had just had 6230s, I would have bought one right away, and maybe another one in a different color, down the road. But I was already compromising on the lack of Flash Coat; the fret size just sealed the "no" for me in the end. In other words, there are some situations in which I will compromise, and some in which I will not. If the guitar is expensive, and I can easily assemble a better one myself, with all the specs I want, then it's a no on compromising. If it's a guitar I can't easily reproduce, and/or the price isn't super high, then it's usually a yes to compromising.
