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.

Awesome Fretwire!

Used the med/med wire to re-fret an old Yamaha acoustic, that was very tired. Plays and sounds like new! No blemishes, and needed almost no levelling, as the heights were consistent. Nice tough wire too.

Medium High works best for me

By
(Customer's Reviews)


I've used this wire on scratch builds and refret jobs. It installs easily and seems to hold up well. I have found that two lenghts (4 feet) has consistently been enough for one guitar with up to 22 frets. I like the little bit of extra height with the medium high.

The Best!

These frets were pleasant to me more than Dunlop frets!
