Are the frets on a '97 RG550 jumbo or extra-jumbo? They seem pretty huge


I`d say these are jumbo frets. They seem a bit smaller than those on my schecter C-1 FR, which are definitely x-jumbo.
yeah i'd say jumbo also. they're pretty large, but not uncomfortable to play on, and i've definitely seen larger frets.

Not sure about the '97, but the '07 was "Jumbo".

Bear in mind that Stratocasters have "Medium Jumbo".

My Ibanezes (RG770 & Xiphos) both have "Jumbo" but they're much bigger than the "Jumbo" frets on my Schecter Avenger--although it has very subtle scallopping that might make up the difference in fret height, if not diameter. The Schecter's Jumbos look pretty close to my Strat's frets...

You're welcome.
