Hmm...

That's odd. You'd think that more folks would be interested in talking about their frets...

I'll get it started: When I buy a Les Paul, if the frets don't please me, I'll refret it with Stew-Mac #141 (.095"x.045") or #154 (.100"x.050"). Not much of a wide fret fan, but I like 'em tall!

Cheers!
- Scott

I like Dunlop 6105, that is similar to what is used on production and Custom Shop Gibsons nowdays (except the '01 '59 and 58's)

Dan the man told me that Gibson levels their frets with a pneumatic air sander (!), a long one like they use for auto body work. Now I can see why I'm always leveling frets on new Gibsons. That's probably why there is such a variance in fret height on new Gibsons, too.
