Instrument makers and repair shops rely on us for the highest quality 18% nickel-silver fretwire. We supply our fretwire in 2-foot straight lengths. Order 6 feet for a complete guitar or bass fret job, and 4 feet for a mandolin, banjo or ukulele.

Order fretwire by the pound for tidy savings!
Our bulk fretwire is supplied in convenient clear storage tubes, to keep your wire organized and your workbench uncluttered. You’ll save 50% or more when you order fretwire by the pound.

Our fretwire is sized to fit a 0.023" (0.58mm) fret slot width.

Fretwire is made in a variety of crown heights. Note that after the frets are installed and leveled, they can lose from .004" to .010" in height. High fretwire has a crown height of .045" or more. It may offer more note sustain due to its slightly greater mass, and more fret dressings are possible between refrettings. Low fretwire is often useful for partial refret jobs.

Good Stuff

This fretwire matched up almost perfectly for a refret job I recently did on an Ovation. I did all the radiusing by hand, and the fretwire was easy to work with and produced great results.

Awesome

This was the perfect thing for and old 80's Ibanez that need a partial refret due to an accident. They fit perfectly and were exact height as the old frets that had been leveled a couple of times.

Jumbo Fret wire 154

Consistent, reasonable price, and suitable for both guitar and bass. I generally only keep this in stock, and most clients are happy with it. It makes things simple for me, and I don't need to order a lot of different sizes of fret wire.

Very good material

In Mexico I can't found other fretwire highest than the wide/highest. Even with taxes, shipping & handling the price of your fretwire have a very low cost with a very high quality material.

Very good quality as always

Unfortunately in my country is difficult to achieve with frets that quality and good price. I've done this same purchase at other times Stwart Mac and hope to continue purchasing and receiving the product with the same quality and delivery time always acceptable to complete my project.
Thank you and recommend these frets!
