    Hello!
    I'm thinking of buying a new guitar (6 string) but all guitars that I try feel like they have super tiny micro frets. I'm used to my Schecter Omen 7, it says it has "extra jumbo" frets, but I can't seem to find any information on what exactly do Schecter understand by extra jumbo.
    Both Dunlop 6000 and 6100 are reffered to as "extra jumbo" but they are quite different.
    Does anyone know what fret wire do they use? Or if you can't give me a answer in sizes, do you know how do they feel compared to the ones listed above (6000 and 6100)?
    By the way they don't feel that big, if 6000 is not that much bigger I'd go for them if I need to buy a decent guitar that needs refret.
    Thank you for your time!

    Measure them and compare them to the specs from Dunlop, Jescar and StewMac.

    Don't forget to account for leveling and crowing.

    I have nothing to measure them with.

    Digital calipers are really cheap these days. Less than $10.

    The thing is, frets are shaped after installation. So without knowing what they are on your current guitar, after they've been leveled, crowned and dressed, there's no way of comparing them to anything.
