    It lets your guitars stay in shape for way longer than regular frets.

    My most played guitar (a Warmoth) showed a lot wear only after 2 years of playing it about every day.

    After I got a new Warmoth neck with SS frets, the frets are in perfect condition after almost 6 years!!!

    So its definitely premium feature!
    It's not a premium feature for someone who doesn't like how they feel or sound.

    To the surprise of nobody, spec sheet warriors don't get that people can prefer regular frets. I was watching one of those short ESP vids they uploaded earlier on their channel and some idiot was gonig on about stainless steel frets there too.

    It used to bother me....especially the “LTD” which kept me away for years...decades. But with the “E-II” logo, I actually really like it. I love the fact that it says “ESP” on the 12th fret as an inlay. Definitely better than the “LTD”.

    I absolutely love my E-II, there is no looking back. It took years but I feel like I’ve found the perfect guitar. Yes, the ESP logo would be better but there is something about the E-II (in person, especially) that looks really slick to me.

    That said, I’ve been very impressed some of the new ESP E-II models.

    If you'd like a MIJ Kiesel here's your chance.

    I mean, I dig stainless steel; I just ordered a new neck with it. But I’m going to get one of the new Zach Myers SE’s, which is regular nickel. Don’t really care.

    Some people actively don’t like SS frets, which is fine too.
