Fret Wire size, which do you prefer?
« on: January 02, 2009, 09:27:09 PM »
Which is your preferred fretwire size?

Plano ko kasing pa- refret yung gitara ko, and kung kayo ang papipiliin, anong size/ type ng fretwire?

 :-)

It feels like a guitar is easier to play with jumbo frets.. kaya sa jumbo frets ako. :-)

well i dont know ah.. pero sa experience ko, when the fret is wearing na, mas madali yata masintunado kapag jumbo frets compared pag nagwear na ang medium sized like sa mga nakakabit standard strats..

AFAIK pag naka-jumbo frets ka dapat light touch lang fretting hand mo madali talagang mag-sharp yung note pag madiin yung kamay mo sa fretboard.

i like skinny vintage frets..

jumbo frets make my finger tips hurt when sliding up/down the fretboard...

only drawback i experienced is that they wear out faster...

Medium jumbo rin for balance between intonation stability at shreddability.

vintage style frets for me... mas ramdam ko ang wood ng fret mas mahirap nga lang mag play i kinda like it that way though, makes me practice harder at madaling mag wear ang frets especially kapag über bending.

Sir burnthyfret :lol:

Sir Rainierito, napansin ko rin nung gumamit ako ng Ibanez Gio (medium/jumbo frets) na mas madali mag bend/ vibrato kesa sa Strat copy ko na maliit ang frets.  :-)

Siguro mag medium/ jumbo or jumbo na lang ako  :-)

for flat radiused guitars, jumbo frets, tall and wide, like dunlop 6100 or the slightly taller jescar 57110, and i also have a preference for stainless steel frets.

for more traditional guitars like les pauls or teles, medium jumbo would be fine, just the right height to feel the fretboard without sacrificing ease of playability. hirap ako sa small vintage frets.
