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.

I would not be without a stock of fretwire from StewMac. Great information on dimensions, with solid recommendations for which size to use with which type of instrument.

purchased the medium/high fretwire (0141lb) and couldn't be happier with not only the product but the service/delivery was outstanding.....took about 5 days to come which is better than when I get things shipped locally around new zealand

152 Fretwire

By Pat from Cumberland, MD
(Customer's Reviews) Friday, August 27, 2010


This was my first full fret job. The 152 fretwire was very forgiving and left plenty of material for my inexperienced self to get a feel for leveling and dressing. I am very satisfied with the end result!

The fret wire arrived quickly and in perfect condition.

It cuts easily and files smoothly.

I'll only use this product on my cigar box guitars now!
