Anyone know what the actual fret size is on a 7620?

I 'm thinking about buying one and I'm trying to find out what fret wire size was used on these.
Jumbo really doesn't tell me much because it could be medium jumbo (6150).
I'm hoping it's 6100 (true jumbo) so I can get along with it.
anyone here know?
I can't find anything online or over at the SS.org site.
thanks

Nick

Not gospel here, but my best guess is that they have the SBB216-195 frets, which are very close to 6100 wire (.110 wide/ .055 tall) ...possibly the slightest bit taller but with the same width. The 7620 is easy to play if you get along with UVs and RGs though.

thanks Jim, I'm hoping it's 6100 wire, because I'm pulling the trigger on the one that has been offered to me. if the frets are medium, it's going right back up for sale over on the SS org. board.
Drew brought his white Uv to my house a while back and I loved the neck shape but the frets were way too small for me.
I've been told by several , that the frets on the 7620 are noticably bigger.
I've got my fingers crossed.

The older UVs have 6140 wire I believe (.106 wide/.039 tall). I haven't had a UV or 7620 around in a while, unfortunately. Good Luck with it though
