R8/R9 Fret Wire Size

I'm curious as to what fret wire size Gibson is using on the
R8/R9's. Anyone know?

Re: R8/R9 Fret Wire Size

Hi, i've got a R8, there is a difference between the frets of the R8 and R9, as I've understand correctly the R9 has bigger frets. That's one of the reasons why peolple like playing them. Joost

Re: R8/R9 Fret Wire Size

My 2003 R9 frets are 0.100" wide and just under 0.050" high (2.54 wide by 1.27 high in mm) in finished condition (they were a tiny bit higher when I bought the guitar, they took a lot of leveling.) Same as my 1990 Standard, although the crowns were maybe a little rounder, and the set-up was abysmal in comparison.

It's what they call Medium Jumbo IIRC. Now all we need is for someone to measure an R8.
