StewMac Medium Fretwire

About This Item

.080" to .095"
Medium widths are the most popular (used extensively by Martin, Fender and Gibson). #0148 Medium is our best seller.

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.

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.

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.

This is quality wire. I have used Macs wide wire before and won't use any other. The member subscription is icing on the cake.

I have been using this wire on everything from ukes to classical guitar and have never been disappointed. Wire frets easily and holds in the slots in most cases w/o glue. I also appreciate the straight sticks when used for un-radiused fretboards. A pound goes a long way and is the best way to buy.

Worked as advertised using StewMac fret saw to cut frets. Would suggest recommending super glue to cure any rocking frets after installation.
