Quick question about frets

How are vintage Fender frets compared to vintage Gibson frets? In size I mean...I know both are tiny, but are the Fender's bigger than "fretless wonder" frets?

Well, tiny frets don't bother me on my friend's R7 Custom...but when I tried a 52 Tele RI, I hated it...but just wondering if it's something I'd adjust too.
Maybe. Probably. After growing used to the smaller frets on my two main guitars, I've grown to prefer them. And when I grab a guitar with jumbo frets, I feel a bit out of sorts.

Yeah, I just wouldn't wanna buy a 52 or 62 RI and never get used to the frets you know?

I always thought that Gibson frets - aside from those on the fretless wonders - were larger than Fender. Am I nuts?

A 12" radius, like that on a Gibson, is way more manageable FOR ME when playing small frets. When I play a vintage Fender frets on a 7.25 radius I'm not as comfortable.
