Yeah, those look friggin' massive. :eek:

I played an RGA7 today, and they didn't seem that big but I might not have been looking closely enough.

They do look huge, not that I have a problem with that I love massive fret wire. The work looks nice too, no crappy fret edges or anything!

I think Ibanez use jumbo, ala Dunlop 6100?

Those frets look so much better than certain others I've seen lately... a couple of nasties on the ends that could be cleaned up quickly. Not bad.

That looks much better than I would have expected. Looks like a decent piece of rosewood too as opposed to the super-light stuff I've seen a lot of recently.

It's no doubt a very nice guitar, especially considering that it's a "low end" 8.

I don't know what the holy hell they were thinking with these pickups and the stupid ass EQ switch, but that's a topic for another thread. :lol:

Don't understand the "WOA MAN MASSIVE FRETWIRE!" posts :lol:
It just looks like normal jumbo-ish sized fretwire to me, nothing out of the ordinary and I'm pretty sure Ibanez use a wire slightly smaller than 6100.
Every Ibanez guitar with "jumbo" frets I've played has had fretwire slightly smaller than 6100.

Fretwire might look big because they're macro pics.

I'll snab a couple more today next to some other fiddles.

Slightly narrower and/or shorter? What about ESP and Schecter who claim "XJ" extra-jumbo frets, any idea what they're using?

I like Ibanez frets :agreed:

And +1 to the rosewood, it looks nice - Chris can you get a full fretboard shot with some flash to show any pattern in the wood?

Has your bass player threatened to hurt you yet? :lol:

Here's some more, flash on, with the 2027 for reference.

2027 is the FB (obviously) with no dots.

I suppose I didn't have to mention the 2027 fretboard being the one with no dots, since it's the one with only seven strings, eh? :lol:

They seem to be pretty much the same width, but slightly shorter in height, which is what I don't like.
I would rather have slightly taller frets and slightly narrower, but eh I guess nothing I can do unless I get my guitars refretted.
