6100 and 6105 Fret Wire - what is the difference between 610

Hi, I noticed that some JEMs(mostly earlier ones) have 6100 fret wire while others have 6105 fret wire and even others(such as the 90) have a different type . I was wondering what the differences are between them and which you feel is better suited on the JEM.

Thanks In Advance.

6100 feels great new, yet 6105 keeps better intonation through the life of the fret.

So where do the 6140's sit in the equation? *I notice that the 777VDY, a Jem noted for its superior playability, has those. *Are the 6140's a major contributing factor here?

Thanks for that, Glen. *It's raised a couple more questions, though...

So the 6140 are wider and lower, would that equate to more speed, less control for string bends and potentially longer fret life?

What spec are 'jumbo' frets, or is it simply a generic term?

Then there are 6000´s too. They´re HUGE! Like a railroad track. Ridiculous, imo.
