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.

Thumbs Up

I use 154 on almost all my electrics, and 148/142 on all the acoustics and banjos I've built. I love the stuff. I wish it came polished a little better, but it's no biggie. Never had a fret pop out with these.

wide fretwire

I've always liked low- wide fretwire for electric guitars. I also am using them for cigar box guitars. Easy to use and need little finish work. Work great for diatonic scale.

jumbo fretwire

Bought 2, 2ft. sections. Overall quality good, except the ends looked like they were lopped off with shears or something..the 'rails' were bent and I needed to cut the ends again with a cut-off disc on my dremel to make them 'square', wasting some of the material.
