Am looking at one of these in a trade deal and was wondering what size frets they come with now.
I seem to recall playing one a couple years ago and the frets were thinner and taller than a Historic.

Any info is appreciated.

Play it and if you like the frets what is the issue. MF says fret size is medium.

Look here jack wagon I gave you the right answer. I got on MF's, which stand for Musicians Friend, website it did not mean Mother F-ukcker if thats how you took it, and it said the 2018 LP Trad have Medium size frets. Which was what you asked, am I correct? Now go away or I shall taunt you a second time. Look it up if you don't believe me. And as far as not knowing anything I knew how to get on the internet and in about 2 minutes find the answer to your question. You have made 24 posts and haven't realized most of us on this forum are a bunch of wise a-ss'ss.If we are so lame go get on the Strat forum. No offence to the Strat guys. I got one.

Doesn't the fretboard get a little wider the closer it gets to the body? So the fret lengths will change. Or is he talking about the actual width of one fret?

I think he's talking height and width,

Length is a requirement of the width of the fret board
And length does not dictate playability

How am I trolling the dude asked a question and I gave him the right answer. Look at my first post.

What the f did the guy want. Height, width and depth and metabolic density. I looked it up and MF said Medium. Which was my answer.
