You like small-fretted guitars, hence you must have a small dick Kidding, btw

Gibson SG has pretty manageable frets, but they still keep the sound going.

You may wanna look into this guitar, it has the smallest frets in the world and has less strings that are bigger then normal strings to make it easier for you to see which string is which

that's what you get for being vague.


but seriously, the guitar with the smallest frets (shortest scale length, right?) is a fender mustang/jaguar/jazzmaster. they all have 24" scale lengths, thus having a short space between each of the frets.

is that what you mean?
#17
As in, like, short frets? Well, I don't know of many guitars that will come stock with short frets, but you can always get a bolt-on and then order a neck from Warmoth with short frets.

From my experience, you aren't exactly the nicest guy around either, pal.


What's your definition of "small" frets? Short and thin? Tall and thin? Short and fat? You need to be more specific.

Give more details about what you call "small frets".


I'd assume he meant in comparison to "medium" or "Jumbo" frets, as any guitar player with half a mind would assume.


Most semi-hollow guitars have medium frets, metal guitars usually have jumbo or extra jumbo

Ive never seen small, however

Well, lots of Strats come with vintage style small fret wire. I'm pretty sure every custom shop one comes with it and same with the Mexis but I don't think the American Standard and Deluxe come with it. I personally hate the stuff. My friend got a CS '60 Reissue Strat and I can't even play it because the frets bother me so much. You could always just get a refret on any guitar you get, it'll just be around $150-$200 I think.

You like small frets,but doesn't that warrior have jumbo frets? Any shorter scale or vintage model should have smaller frets,so that's a good starting point in your search.I personally prefer large frets,it seems more comfortable for my style to play on them.

Some of the fenders have vintage style smaller frets. I don't really like jumbo frets at all.
#26
I think a Gibson SG has plenty small frets...especially in the higher register.

But personally i'd be more interested in the Epi Prophecy range..i tend to like something a little different and they play very well, with ebony boards, satin neck finishes, EMGs and 24 frets.
#27
I got a question, what does jumbo and xtra jumbo frets mean? like, are they wider, or taller or both or whatever?

Thanks
#28
Not sure if this is what you mean, but I know a guy who had his frets filed down for super low action. That neck played so well its rediculous.

Yo. Jumbo frets are taller than regular frets, and a bit thicker. You need to apply less pressure to the string to get a sound, as if you push too hard, you won't hit the note you think you're hitting, since there's a dip in each fretting. Kinda like a cheap scallop, to attempt make a comparison. Jumbo frets (for me, personally) help with fast playing, since you apply less pressure, and you can also push hard and release etc for a vibrato effect.

XTra Jumbo are...taller than jumbo.

1) I say that because pretty much every thread i see you in, you act like an immature **** and don't help at all.

2) There are more types of frets than just "small, medium, and jumbo"
