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.

First refret job- not perfect - but stewmac gave me the confidence to try... Someone sanded the frets down to almost nothing but now I have a very playable acoustic!

Bulk Buy!

Glad I liked this fret wire as I bought a pound of it (lot of home builds!) - hammers in well on new builds and tight fit (not glueing them in so this is important) - feel great, and lots of height for levelling

as everyone knows stewmac omits what could be the most important dimension of fretwire. this measures .035". quality and application were excellent.
