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.

Agree on this one. Although sa akin on more traditional guitars, I also prefer traditional vintage fretwire.

i like medium jumbo frets... they're perfect... jumbos are okay, and vintage frets are too small, but I dont have a problem playing them.. it just needs getting used to..
You don't choose the guitar, it chooses you.

If at any point in time you cannot afford a particular guitar, don't play it. If it chooses you, you have to buy it.  If you simply can't beg, steal, or borrow, you will eventually die of a broken heart..

Probably - just probably - masiyado madiin ang pindot mo ng kwerdas. Small frets are usually a tad taller than medium to jumbo frets. Pag masiyadong madiin ang pindot the notes go sharper than usual. If your notes go sharper than usual that could be the problem.

whenever I play jumbo its always a delight how comfy it is compared to the vintage ones, but when I go back to vintage thin frets, I love how you have to dig in and it inspire you to play more dynamic,
hehe i love both jumbo and vintage but prefer vintage at least for now

medium jumbo, or medium vintage flats.

masakit mag slide sa jumbo. maliit hands..short fingers.. nahihirapan ako mag thumb pag jumbo (sa strat ko before)

kaya ok na pala medium jumbo. since di naman ako heavy riff strum punk rockin.

may pros and cons din naman kahit anong size

jumbo, madali pindutin, pag nag wear out nawawala sa intonation, mahirap din mag slide sa single string.

vintage, mahirap pindutin, mahirap mag bend dahil sa finger to fretboard friction. pero madali mag chords, almost well intonated ever worn

kaya 6105 na lang para balance. hehehe!
