Highest quality 18% nickel-silver fretwire .100" or wider fretwire (original .098" Gibson "jumbo" fretwire from the late '50s is medium by modern standards), favored for string bending and used on many modern electric guitars and basses.
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. Our fretwire tang is sized to fit a 0.023" (0.58mm) fret slot width.
Order 6 feet for a guitar or bass, and 4 feet for a mandolin or banjo.
