    Been gassing for a old looking oly. white strat for awhile, and recently played a road worn. Loved everything except the high thin frets and the 7.25 radius. The neck itself feels great, but I just am not sure I could get used to the fretwire. Is there anything that could be done about that. I have a old Ibanez that is 7.25 radius and while it is not ideal, I can live with it. I have only owned US made fenders and am very used to their feel and quality. Hopefully I won't be disappointed if the fretwire can be changed without having to spend more than it is worth. I could always find a nice used US strat in that color and make it feel like the road worns. What do you think is the best option?

    I have 2 guitars with the tall frets and love them. It took me some getting used to though. If set up properly, they are so easy to play. For me a really low action and a lighter touch doing slides is the key.
