Jescar Wide-Medium (47104) Stainless Steel Fret Wire (6 ft)
This premium JESCAR WIDE-MEDIUM 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 9" radius basis, which will help keep those ends down when you are installing it. This wire has a nice wide crown and medium height - 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. We also include a 2-page sheet of fretting "do's and don'ts" to help the first-time fretter get started, at no extra charge!
Can be used on acoustic guitars and electric guitars, and any other stringed instrument that calls for a wider fret crown. It can also be used on cigar box guitars! 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 - diamond files are recommended. See my other fret wire offerings for more "friendly" fret wire options.
