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.

Perfect for Zero Fret

I used the 0150 wire for the zero fret in a '81 Gretsch BST1500. It was perfect for bass string height and had plenty of crown to dress down the treble side.

A chance to use all the tools

Holds it's shape very well. Needed to shave the tang a little. Used the fret barber and wire bender.

Excelent frets

I use the Wide/low 0146 frets for all my builds. After dressing the frets they have a wonderful worn in feel, almost like the old "fretless wonders" used back in the '50's. Love 'em!!

Wirely Pleased!

I received my fret wire and I must say it is exactly what I was hoping it would be. I think for the pictures of the fretwire Stewmac should put some sort of size reference to each fretwire, but overall pleased at the product.
