I have a D'angelico with medium frets, and a Gretsch with skinny frets? What are the pros and cons of these different types? My internet search hasn't been conclusive.


All opinions and points of view are welcome............

Bending strings is where I notice a difference. With tall frets and a light touch your fingers don't make as much contact with the fingerboard so it feels a lot better to me. 

Tall frets with an inexperienced player tend to get squeezed sharp due to uneven and excessive fretting.
