Jescar "Super Jumbo" Stainless Steel Fret Wire (6 ft)
This premium JESCAR "SUPER JUMBO" stainless steel fret wire is both beautiful and extremely durable, a perfect finishing touch for your special build or re-fretting job! Stainless Steel is just about the hardest type of fretwire you can get, and people who use it say it gives a silkier, smoother feel when playing than does nickel-silver fret wire.
This wire set comes in nine (9) 8" lengths, pre-radiused on a ~10" radius basis, which will help keep those ends down when you are installing it. The size of this wire is as big as it gets, with the widest crown width and highest crown height commercially available from Jescar - see the exact specs below. This wire will fit nicely into a .023" fret slot, which is pretty much the standard for most modern fret wires.
Can be used on electric guitars, acoustic & electric basses, and any other stringed instrument that calls for the highest and widest fret wires. Can also be used on cigar box guitars for a special scalloped fretboard feel. The 8-inch lengths allow you to easily cut the exact lengths you need. Stainless Steel fret wire does take more attention to detail than standard nickel-silver fret wire, and is not necessarily the best choice for the first-time fretter. See my other fret wire offerings for more "friendly" fret wire options.
