Medium Size Frets and Jumbo Size Frets

What are medium and jumbo size frets?

A medium fret is what is usually used on an acoustic guitar. If you look at a cross section of it, it looks like a rivet and the head (crown) is a perfect half circle. This is the part you actually see on your fingerboard when it's installed. The crown usually measures .085" wide and .045" tall. A jumbo fret would be wider and higher .115" & .050" respectively. Jumbos are usually used on electrics and sometimes acoustics.
