well, for frets, it's all in how you play the neck. If you choke your neck and push your strings into the wood, go with vintage fret wire. If you've got a light touch and want a more scalloped feel, find the biggest fret wire you can. That's the extremes of both ends of the spectrum. Personally, I choke the hell out of my necks so the vintage fret wire works best for me. But works best for me might not be the best for you.

It all comes down to personal preference. I would prefer medium jumbo fret-wire. All this thread is going to achieve is a list of personal preferences for each poster.
