About This Item

.100" to .110" width
Favored for string bending; used on many modern electric guitars and basses. (Late '50s Gibson® .098" jumbo fretwire is medium by modern standards.)

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.

Reliable products and great service

I rely on stemac's fretwire for consistency and I also prefer the tubes of straight wire rather than coils for ease of storage.

Recently my order was misdirected to an old address-probably my fault-and customer service shipped a new order via FedEx without waiting for the original item to be returned. Much appreciated!

I've been using this fret wire for years. I've built many guitars and performed many refrets with this fret wire. It's easily workable and buffs out to a high shine. It as never failed me.

High Quality Fretwire

Fret wire was neatly packaged and consistent from piece to piece. Easy to level using a fret press, easy to finish from leveling through crowning and polishing.
