What size frets do Fender P's have?

  1. Do they have medium frets? or jumbo? or what?

    Also are Jumbo frets better for tuning down or doesnt it make a difference?

    It depends on the series.I think american made basses have medium jumbo,while mexican made basses may have smaller "vintage" frets.Not sure if it makes a difference when tuning down.
     
  3. My MIM P-Bass has monster sized frets. At least I think they're pretty big.

    Yeah,I could be getting MIM basses mixed up with MIM strats.I know the guitars have smaller frets,that's why I got a MIA.But some P basses do have vintage frets,for example;the Duck Dunn signature.
