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