Product Details

.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.

Great Fret wire

I did my first fret job using this wire. It is very easy to work with and I'm very happy with the end result. I'll never pay for a fret job again!

If you are using it on your first guitar, you will be impressed. I am still using it on my 16th+ guitar. A definite buy.

This wire is perfect. Plenty of mass to file and dress. All of Stew Macs fret wire is good stuff. I like the dimension diagrams for each size.

I've been using the medium fretwire and have been extremely happy with the results. Plenty of wire to do any possible dressing that might need to be done. I use the fret saw from StewMac also so the results are perfect every time.

I have used two different heights of the medium fret wire and have not had any issues with this product. I have gained a lot of confidence in my ability to fret an instrument, due in part to the quality of the fret wire. Just received another order yesterday and it arrived as ordered. Thanks for being reliable in regard to ordering and quality of materials.
