Hey.

I have had a Charvel So Cal for a few years now, MIJ, love it.
It needs a refret, does anybody here know what wire size they have ?
I'm guessing Dunlop 6100 ?

Thanks :D

6100 is close.
But I would recommend Jescar with their FW57110 wire, which is ever so slightly taller than 6100 but the same width.
I have one of my Ibanez guitars refretted with that wire in stainless and it's amazing.
Luthiers I've spoke too in real life and also the opinion of many here feel it (Jescar) is much better wire than Dunlop.

I have Jescar on a few of my guitars, I agree it's a really nice feeling wire.
I just bought something like the 55110 to refret a Washburn N2.

Sorry I don't know if MIJ used the same, but the MIA Charvel Pro Mods state "Dunlop Jumbo 6100 (or SBB equivalent)" or sometimes just "Jumbo" in the spec sheets.
