    Anybody know? So many different types out there...

    do you mean wide? or tall?  I recently found Jescar makes a .110 x .60  nickel,  it is a little harder than normal.  I love it,  I had one of my guitars installed with it,  and it is all I will ever use (until something better comes along).

      Suhr's Jumbo SS frets are .110 x 0.55 - I *thought* it was Jescar wire but I could be wrong.  I hadn't seen anything bigger, but of course that doesn't mean it isn't out htere.

      I mean both wide and tall. As wide and tall as it gets.

    The largest I have found is the Dunlop 6000. This stuff has a crown height of .58 and a width of .118 Jescar makes their version of this fret wire and its called FW58118 Super Jumbo. It is the exact same size of the Dunlop 6000. They also make FW58118-S, which is a stainless steel version. Definately interested in Jescars stainless steel super jumbos. I know that Malmsteen uses the Dunlop 6000. So the stainless steel version of what he uses would be bad **bleep**. But is there anything larger than this? What is the largest stuff made?
