I have steered clear from Fenders 7.25 " necks with vintage frets. Never really tried many of them. My other strats are 9.5 with Dunlop 6105 frets. Big difference. I decided after trying one out at GC to buy one . I bought a AVRI 57 Reissue strat . Its been 2 weeks and I gotta say I dont understand what all the hubbub is about. Pretty smooth transition . It took me a day or so to get used to the vintage frets since 6105s are on the opposite end of the spectrum. But I dont really even notice the difference. So whats your experience?
