    I was interested in purchasing an artist package prs 513. However the frets were too big for my playing style and I would like to have smaller frets similar to Gibson medium jumbo. Is it possible to order a different size fret when ordering an artist package? Is this a service that prs would perform? Or am I stuck with the standard prs frets? I have a guitar that has the same size frets as prs and I really don't like them and they severely negatively affect my playing style. It's kinda a deal breaker for me.

    thanks!

    No, but you're never stuck with frets. They are replaceable.

    The Gibson medium jumbo are about the same width as the jumbo wire used on PRS. You could buy the guitar you like best and have a trusted tech level the frets down to the height of the wire used on Gibsons.

    You could always go nuts and get a private stock model and spec your fret size.

    My only sadness is that PTC won't let you do stainless frets. :(
