Re: Ibanez Frets

Jim Dunlops calls the 6000 & 61xx Large or Jumbo:
An early Jem would have 6100 (biggest jumbo apart from the 6000)
A more recent Jem has 6105, just as tall as 6100 but narrower. (starting with the 1993 7VWH)
A Jem90HAM has SBB 216-195 jumbo frets, like most 1998 J-customs and the Jem555.
Most others S-series, RG etc. are just labelled "Jumbo"
Some exceptions include the Medium/Regular 6230 on the FGM and the JS custom fretwire.

I just played on a friend's FGM which are supposedly medium, but when I compare those frets to my Jem777DSY or Jem90HAM they are are tiny. The DSY appears to have slightly fatter wire than the HAM but both are Jumbo.

Re: Ibanez Frets

Does anybody know what kind of frets are in the x series necks and the roadstar II necks? They seem really small to me.
