I just realized...

... what the one thing is that really bugs me about my UV777 in comparison with my BRMR. It's the frets!

The UV777's frets are huge in comparison, and I get hung up when sliding to-and-fro a whole lot more than I do on the JEM.

Am I imagining this, or has anyone posted similar complaints? Or should I just get the UV refretted and call it a night

Re: I just realized...

Fret wire on a BRMR is w6015, on a UV its 6140.
I wouldn't change the frets, its expensive and maybe it looks not as good as before.
