fret size on DSW

1

My DS and former DSV were issued with small vintage size frets. Is the same true for the post Fender DSW models or do they have medium jumbo frets?

My 2009 DSW has the small vintage frets.

I have a 2014 6120DSW (Black, FSR) and it has the vintage frets. I thought I wouldn't like them, but actually the guitar plays well and I can bend on the skinny frets with no trouble.

Thanks guys; don't like'm myself, but that's just me.

Vintage on my 2004. I think the 12" radius and the tru arc make these more playable as I can bend easily all over the neck. I could never get along with the vintage Fender frets on a 7.25" neck.

Get a pair of calipers and measure them, jumbo, vintage are arbitrary names.

Hey Journeyman, I have a late 2003 (JT0312) DS on the way. Just wondering what the radius of yours in? thanks.
