    Beings that I haven't "discovered" fretless, I stick with medium frets. Large just get in the way, and small ones do the same, but in the opposite manner.

    Since "medium jumbo" wasn't a candidate, I didn't vote. I know that sounds like "jumbo shrimp," but that's what the maker said it was.

    My old Precis has a thinner wire that is great and I'm thinking about getting that on a custom. But as the wire gets thinner, the more frequent the refretting jobs become.
