What is this fretwire?

Hi,

Late last year I bought an Ibanez Apex1. And now having played it for quite a bit I feel that it has ones of the best frets I've played. The fretwire is different to my '01 RG570, it's more narrow and I think taller.
I've done a little bit of research and it seems like the closest comparison is Dunlop 6105, but they seem even slightly taller than Dunlops. Although the only tool I have to measure these is a caliper.
I remember seeing posts of some fellow members who could even identify fretwire by the look of it.

Anybody has any idea?

Looks like 6105 to me.

Though Ibanez WIKI just lists jumbo fret wire.

Ah, thanks Rich. If it's not too much bother, what does the database say about '03 K7?
