    So, I did search, I did check specs on PRS site? Nothing? What am I missing.
    Really would like to know.
    Getting another Am Strat soon and the ones I have had in the past have had medium jumbos. The frets on my PRS are definitely taller. I like them.
    What are they? Narrow tall?
    Thanks folks

    Well I guess I found it. The article I found says medium jumbos on all American electrics except the Santana models. They sure seem taller than the medium jumbos on my USA DLX Strat and of course I cannot find my calipers.

    I did find that PRS , supposedly uses the "same" frets (MEDIUM JUMBO) on all it's American Electrics except for the Santana model. I have always played American Fender Strats for decades(still do) and they have medium jumbo frets.
    The frets on my S2 McCarty 594 seem wider and taller. I also like them, just don't seem like medium jumbo's to me.

    The DGT has jumbo frets, and the 594 actually has the dressed so the feel “broken in.”

    OK but I keep coming up with this in an exhaustive search:

    medium jumbo

    PRS uses a medium jumbo size exclusively (except for the US made Santana models, which use a slightly bigger size). Jumbo fretwire is the really big stuff like Dunlop 6100 and equivalent sizes at ~. 110-. 055” or Dunlop 6000 (Ibanez JEM series).
