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.

Fretwire

This wire works great. And is tall enough to level and still have plenty of material to crown and polish.

Tang Width

Fret wire is easy to work with, but the tang size is a little to wide for my 2007 D28. I had to file tang on both sides to get it to fit. Stewmac said their fret tang width is all standard...doesn't fit my guitar. Maybe my fault, but still.

Medium Fretwire

Easy to work with. Bends and cuts and sands down easily. I completed a neck and still had an entire wire left over. Couple more fret jobs and the next one will be "free".

Fender seekers are better off sticking to this fretwire

This medium fretwire is ideal for those that play with a heavy hand.

Outstanding wire...perfect!

A very good wire for replacing worn frets, or doing a fret install on a new fingerboard...5 stars!

Top Notch as usual

I have never had a problem with any Stewart Macdonald Products and I have used a fair bit of it. I received my order in great time (considering we are talking shipped to Canada)3 days to the door? WOW!. I love the periodic catalogs that have been mysteriously landing in my mailbox for a few years. My Stewart Macdonald link is pasted on my desktop in 4 inch letters because quite simply it is the first place I look for parts. Great stuff! I buy the fretwire by the pound and you get lots. I believe I did 4 guitars with the last pound. Might have been 5.
