Wide/Medium size fretwire for electric guitar or bass. Our Wide/Medium is slightly taller than old Gibson® jumbo wire; for leveling new frets with plenty of metal remaining for a traditional jumbo feel. Instrument makers and repair shops rely on us for the highest quality 18% nickel-silver fretwire.
StewMac Fretwire is sold here in a single 2-foot straight piece. Order 6 feet for a complete guitar or bass fret job, and 4 feet for a mandolin, banjo or ukulele.
Fret Width: .103" (2.62mm)
Fret Crown: .046" (1.16mm)
Fret Tang Height: .067" (1.70mm)
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.
