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.

I Love StewMac. I ordered some guitar fretwire about 2 years ago and just recently opened the box and it was Mandolin wire. I sent them an Email and they sent me the correct Guitar wire with no hassle. They have the best customer service I have ever dealt with! Thank you.

very good fret wires and reasonably priced.

These are the same fret wires that I bought pre cut which seem a bit pricey, that way ,so I decided to buy the pack and cut it myself as I had the fret cutter that I got froom StewMac earlier so it made sense to cut the wires my self and save a few dollars in the process which worked out fine for me and I lam learning more about fret, and fret wires at the same time:cant beat that

Over the years (35+) I've done a lot of fret jobs and this wire is by far the most popular.I recently did a Martin D-35 Anniversary Issue and currently have a '67 D28 and a '65 Yamaha 12 string in the shop for new frets, among other things. I love my stuff from StewMac!

I bought this to have in stock for fret replacement. I'm glad to have a few 2 foot pieces around to match the frets I'm working on.
