StewMac Medium Fretwire

About This Item

.080" to .095"
Medium widths are the most popular (used extensively by Martin, Fender and Gibson). #0148 Medium is our best seller.

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.

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.

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.

Setting a standard

This is one of the things that Stewmac does that is second to none. Their fretwire is hard, so it lasts a long time, and if you get it in one pound increments the storage containers are great.

First fret job

Thanks to Stewmac I felt confident to do a fret job on the new fingerboard I also purchased. After careful filing I took my guitar to an approved martin luthier and he congratulated me on a good, first time fret job with quality materials. Thanks Stewmac

The leg is a little bit short for replacing the fender jumbo fret, quite difficult to install.
Very good for replacing classical guitar fret.
