    Does anyone know what gauge fret wire Gibson used on their '71 SG Standard?

    I’m looking to refret mine (mine is a ‘72, me thinks). Also, importantly, and I have read several other threads on this but looking for an update on people’s actual experience with stainless steel on their SG’s. I’m inclined to go SS.

    Old thread, I know. Medium jumbo is most likely what they used. As far as size measurements I wouldn't know that particular info.
