Do any of you know for fairly certain?

"Gee Dave, I think it was kinda thin.."

"No, you're wrong, It was medium-jumbo.."

"Dude, medium-jumbo is shrimp you fool.."


Fellas, I need numbered sizes, like 90-45 or such.

Even a Dunlop number will do.

The “skinny” fretwire on pre 1959 Les Pauls was .070” wide. Dunno if the V was the same…

The closest I’ve found to that is .078” which for me is plenty close enough
