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.

Easy to work with

Used the wide/high fret wire for my Tricone project. it bends easily, levels & crowns pretty easily, even for this newbie to fret work! They play really nice & smooth as well. I will repeat what some have said about the huge box + rates for shipping...seems a little silly when you only order a couple 2' lengths, but I guess thats when buying in bulk pays.

Fretwire

Good quality and value for money.

It's a pity that such a small item has to ship in a big package, otherwise very happy with Stew-Mac service as per usual.

Good stuff!

I have always used Stew Mac frets and I see no reason to use any other. Why fix it when it's not broke. Thank you for a fine product.

Very good wire.

I think your wire is great. Easy to clean, easy to bend, easy to press or hammer in, etc. It would be better if one could pick different tangs for each crown size.

stewmac fretwire

I've built dozens of guitars now, almost exclusively using Stew Mac's nickel silver fretwire. I've tried others but I keep coming back.
