I played mediums for nearly 15 years on strats and lesters,,when i decided to take the plunge and learn to refret myself I also decided to try Jumbos and see how they felt. I got the biggest Jumbos StewMac has and I love them ! ! I can`t really describe the difference but you will notice it big time, 1 tip from a fellow newby refretter. Check your End nippers very closely, mine were ground flat but not flat enough, I am going to have to regrind the top so they cut more flushly. I didn`t get the StewMac nippers as I got a cheaper set off ebay, on my bound neck I noticed I had a slight overhang of the end of the fret over the binding and it made dressing the ends a bear. With a maple neck you could end up with a hair of the tang sticking out of the neck that needs to be filed off and could scratch the wood,, so make double or even triple sure your nippers can cut DEAD flush with the wood so you don`t get into this issue. My buddy wants me to refret his maple strat neck with jumbos and am going to do some grinding and nipping to make sure my nippers cut the fret as dead flush on his neck as I can get them.
