Can anyone tell me what size fretwire( i.e. crown height and width) that Martin use on their 000-12 fret models such as the 000-15SM or 000-17SM? Thanks in advance, Mike.

I use Jescar FW37080 (.080″w X .037h), it is offered in various tang widths as well for compression refrets on Vintage Martin guitars.
