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.

Another best buy

I've been buying StewMac wire for 25 yrs, its leaps & bounds in quality and price over Dunlop wires. Ive used all of StewMac's "med" range wires, mostly for Fender & Gibson re-frets. Their "medium/high" & "medium/higher" wires are perfect for most re-fret jobs. My favorite is their unique "medium/highest" wire, which is narrower & taller than regular "med" wires.

Everything went well

Verified Buyer


Used this for my first time replacing frets, when a more generic fretwire from amazon failed to do the trick. This wire was easy to use and filed down smoothly. It seems like it will hold up well.

It's not easy to find niche fretwire online, so I'm glad I was able to find some here!

Nice medium fretwire, and not too tall. I use it more than any other size. Perfect for acoustic and electric guitars unless the customer wants something exotic.

I like this fret wire because it comes in good condition

Great fret wire in convenient lengths. BUT I am shocked that the price went from around $45/pound since I last purchased it to around $75/pound. So I am stocking up for the meltdown of the economy.

Just about a dead ringer

Yup - this fret wire is indeed very close to the original spec on my '84 and '94 Guild acoustics. Perfect for the partial refret on both guitars.
