Just a brief question... when someone refers to the height of a fret as 'tall' or 'high' what are they actually referring to?
Just taking a swing at it as I don't quite know myself but I would guess the metal frets height from the actual fretboard.
They're referring to how physically tall the frets are, and how high they sit above the fretboard. The reason some people like large frets like this is because it makes the fretboard feel 'scalloped'

It's kinda hard to give an answer to your question because it's like asking why water is wet- the concept is pretty intuitive to understand.

And well yes, I'll enjoy the carpal tunnel and tendonitis, because trying to get one is clearly smarter than any word you have spoken thus far.
