  1. what kind of frets do you prefer ?

    my vote goes to Jumbo.
    the ATK has BIG frets, and if you press on one of the the strings, it does not touch the fretboard, only the frets.

    warwick SAYS they use jumbo frets but they're definitely smaller than the ones on my moses neck, or on fenders. so i say MEDIUM!
  5. Can someone give me a quick rundown of the difference between fret sizes, as far as playing goes? It seems to me that it should make little difference if any, unless the difference of having the string "float" above the fretobard as opposed to touching the fretboard is a noticeable difference.


  6. If I have them, I like them small.

    But I prefer none.
  7. Allodox, good post! :)

    I haven't played enough fret sizes to really know, but I (think) I like Medium frets with a REAL stiff neck, that way I can have low action. :cool:

    Medium or medium jumbo.

    Though, a lot of the times, it depends on the bass.
  9. I believe I have pretty small ones on my Dingwall. He describes them as banjo frets. They feel real small when your running your fingers over them, compared to my fender.
    So Small for me
