Re: Fret Differance?

im pretty sure that on the JS1000's and JS1200's, the fretwire is vintage style, which is thinner than the med/jumbo fretwire on the JS100's. (i think, correct me if im wrong )

Re: Fret Differance?

The closest is 6155, but it's really not going to feel the same. Stewart Macdonald has two wires that are much closer. 0141 and 0152. 0152 is a little taller and narrower, but still .055" tall like Dunlop's 6105. I like Stew Mac's 0152 the best personally, better than Warmoth's.

For the original question, I don't know what's on the Korean models. The only thing we know for sure is that the Japanese models have Warmoth 6105.
