Ibanez Jem & Universe fretwire

I’ve seen a lot of wrong information about this, so I’ll just leave this here.

Regarding fretwire, the Ibanez Jem 7VWH uses Warmoth 6105 frets, not Dunlop 6105. That’s why you find “W/6105” on the specs. The Ibanez Universe – all models, as far as I know, including the Jem 7V7 –, listed as having jumbo frets on the specs, has Dunlop 6140.

Actual measurements:
  • Warmoth 6105 – h .047", w .096" (7VWH);
  • Dunlop 6105 – h .055", w .090";
  • Dunlop 6140 – h .039", w .106" (UVs).
