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.

small order

First of all your fret wire is great quality,However,I ordered just (two) 2foot lengths of fretwire 4feet total of Dan Erlewine's favorite fretwire, and they sent me 2 slightly different fretwires, luckily I could use it on a project but next time I'll just save a hassle and buy a whole tube.Avoiding the chance of a mix up. Sorry guys but I feel reviews are not just for warm fuzzys. Everyone makes mistakes. As a rule your company is generally nice to deal with.

Like this better than the narrow for mandolins

I tried this wire after seeing a Stelling mandolin a friend had. The wire has alot more meat to work with and if you have a less than perfect fretboard that is a good thing ( yeah I know, a good luthier always has a perfectly flat and true surface).I'm not a good luthier but I am trying, so anyway this wire is good so use it.

Stays put and EASY to work with!

Great fret wire! It has really effective barbs. Once you have the fret pressed/tapped in place it stays there. No spring-back. When you work with quality materials, work is a pure pleasure!

quality in and quick delivery

Was at a guitar workshop and we realized we needed fret wire. Stew-Mac came through for us when we were in a serious pinch, delivering fret wire the next day to California. Thanks guys!

Refret? No sweat!

I've used Stew-Mac's fretwire before, and have yet to run into any problems. Works great on acoustic and electric guitars and basses. Haven't used any other brands, don't think I need to. Overall, I'm pleased with this fretwire.
