Thanks for this! It really helps me alot, by the way i have a new question.. Even if i use .10 gauge string, does the stainless steel fret can stand it? It won't have a fret wear easily?

Regardless of the string gauge, you will have to play very hard for a very long time to produce any wear on those stainless steel frets!

Probably - I've been using a 9 gauge spring with .008 gauge strings for almost six years!

You can try all three notches to see if you notice a difference. I think I just left mine in the center notch.
