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.

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.

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.

The Best Med/Med Fret Wire

I like to build mountain dulcimers in my spare time and have purchased my fret wire from other sources. However, I decided to try Stewart-MacDonald after my last order of fret wire came coiled so it could fit in a same shipping box. My first fret wire from Stewart-MacDonald was shipped in a nice long box that kept the wire nice and straight, which is nice sine the fingerboard on a mountain dulcimer is flat and not curved. The quality of the product was outstanding. I think I have found a new source for my fret wire.

Medium fretwire results

I have used this size on Fender, Gibson, and Gretsch guitars with excellent results that required the least amount of fret leveling. My latest project on a 1956 Gretsch only necessitated dressing the fret ends.

Needed Medium High For Vintage Fender '63 Duo-Sonic

My May '63 Fender Duo-Sonic needed a fingerboard leveling and new frets. The medium/medium slipped out of the slots (you have to pound out the wire sideways,) so I bought medium/high 6 feet which was more than enough for the fret job. It came out great. Thanks Stew-Mac for great instructional videos. James Powers

0152 dan's fretwire

This medium/higher fretwire that Dan designed is definitely my favorite. It is high enough for fast picking and also great for chording. Best wire that i have tried.

easy fret

The stew-mac fret wire was as close to perfect as you get. There was very little need for filing. Mostly a little polishing. The guitar plays beautify. Easy fret job !

The ONLY one frets!

I done several guitars in my life and i try all brands of frets , these Frets are the best on the market. I never find anything wrong. It bends easily and is hard enough to dress fine without glue or other stuff from 4 to 13 strings necks !

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!

Very decent wire

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.
