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.

Even though I'm not a high volume guitar builder, Stewart Mac has always treated me as if I was their only customer. I wish I was a volume builder so I can order more material and supplies! This is just one of several items I ordered this time around. As usual, the service was excellent and the product is outstanding. This is my go to fret wire. Never been disappointed.

Very good results

I'm no pro when it comes to guitar repair but my treasured old Yamaha FG 360 was unplayable with extreme fret wear and multiple dressings so I gave a refret a try. This fretwire worked perfectly and I am extremely happy with the results. The guitar is nearly 50 years old and has never played or sounded better.

Matched with a Stew Mac fretboard, this fret wire pressed in tightly and held tightly with no "pop-ups".

When I received the order I placed ended up being short on the fret wire I needed. I emailed customer service and they got back to me the same day. They FedEx the remaining wire I needed and I was able to finish the job for my customer on time. Thank You Stew Mac

Two frets were replaced sometime in the instrument's earlier life and are causing buzzing. After a long search I found yours that appear to match the other original frets dimension. Will install shortly and expect success. Nicely packed, BTW.
