Q: Are stainless-steel frets better than regular frets?
A: Opinions vary. Stainless steel is harder than regular nickel silver. Some players feel that stainless-steel frets make a guitar sound a bit brighter and that they feel slightly different — smoother for bending and finger vibrato.
Frets made from stainless steel will almost certainly wear better than regular nickel-silver frets. Some players feel that stainless-steel frets intonate better for the long run, as they do not wear like nickel frets.
