Well I was hoping for at least a recommendation on the fret size for the peavey reactor. I keep waiting. Thanks

I know that you're frustrated with the lack of response, but it's a difficult question to answer. Fretwire come in a variety of materials, widths, and heights.

Guitars have been made with very tall frets down to the low flat fretted Gibson "Fretless wonders." (Above the extremely tall range are scalloped fretboards which are like exaggerated tall frets...see https://www.frudua.com/advantages-and-d ... tboard.htm for example.)

What do you like?

Where are you planning on having the fretwork done? Talk it over with the luthier that you plan to have do the work.

Myself, I tend to like tall frets. I have skinny fingers with very large knuckles. My left forefinger isn't straight, but bends toward my middle finger at the proximal interphalangeal (PIP) joint, the knuckle closet to my palm. The combination of the large knuckle and the bend there makes bar cords extremely difficult. Taller frets help with that. I would consider trying a scalloped fretboard, but realistically I'm too financially responsible (cheap) to buy one anyway. I'd still like to play one sometime, though.

Let us know what you decide.

Thank you for your hard work and time. Basically
I wish to return it to original specs. I could just measure it but I just want to get it right
