RGT42DX Fretwire?

Does anyone know anything about the fretwire on the Indonesian made RGT series guitars? (Mine is 2009) Is this good quality fretwire? I had some loose frets on purchase, and its making me question the fret material (I have replaced every other peice of "hardware" from stock, everything but the wood).

It should be nickel fretwire, unless I'm mistaken. They put nickel fretwire on virtually every guitar in existence. It's the quality control of the facility that matters most, and since you have an Indonesian guitar, that should pretty much answer your question

Yeah, hence why i went out of my way to replace everything else. The wood was all I really desired. Never dawned on me to think of replacing the frets prior to purchase though. I suppose I should look into high quality fretwire...
