1 Windsordave 4 months ago There's frequent chatter around about someone's mention of fret height and/or shape but never a thread about why you prefer what you use for your playing style and why you don't like others.I myself have to have very low and wide frets. Low, because playing fingerstyle, I'm always playing open strings in combination with fretted strings and fretted notes get pulled sharp if the string has to descend the distance to the fretboard that occurs with jumbo or tall frets. This creates dissonance between the fretted and open strings. And I don't want the frets to have edges/sides to them that my fingertips bump into moving about. The frets need to be wide so their profile is completely rounded. You may suggest using heavier gauge strings than the 10-46's I use to lesson the amount of depression, but I don't like the added tension and I want the strings to contact the fretboard, not hover above it as heavier strings and tall frets create. By the stings touching the fretboard, the low frets allow minimal depression so the dissonance is almost eliminated..So I'd like to hear from folks who like the jumbo's that manufacturers are putting on new guitars - electrics and acoustics, and from time to time we hear here, mention of as a preference.
