This should probably go in gear building and customization, but I would rather get the information from a bass player.

I will be ordering a custom neck from Warmoth for a bass I'm going to be building over summer break from college. It's a Wenge neck with a Bloodwood fingerboard and I'm going to match it with a mahogany body. Very nice, just what I'm looking for. While customizing the neck it gave me the option for what type of fretwire I wanted. Now, I have no idea what the difference between the various types of fretwire are (6100, 6105, etc.) I was just curious what these numbers mean, is it the gauge? If so, are the lower numbers thicker or thinner? This info will help me out greatly.

When I get all of the parts, I'll update you all on the building process and how it turns out.

jumbo fretwire, your fingers are farther from the fretboard
slender, your fingers will still e touching it even with perfect technique.

wider fretwire would add a little more mass, no doubt giving a wee bit more sustain.

thinner fretwire will stay somewhat where the note is supposed to go, allowing it to sound with better intonation.

I wouldn't call what we have here on the Bass Forum a mentality. It's more like the sharing part of an AA meeting.
