    Hello fellow luthiers.

    I have a question for you all.
    I got my hands on an stratocaster elite, it comes with medium-jumbo frets.
    Now the guitar sounds great, I prefer single-coils over humbuckers, there is only one problem.
    The frets are not jumbo sized which I'm used to.
    So my question is, if I was to change the frets to jumbo would it went up with other things having to be changed too? Such as the nut? I want the action to be very low you see and in my head I can't see that the fret change could be done without others parts of the guitar not being affected. Does anyone know?

    Only if the frets are taller will it have a difference in nut and Bridge hight. You could allways crown the frets down

    Always expect to replace the nut when doing a fret job.
