Testimonials

“You guys are the best. I just received my order and literally every time i describe my specifications on how the fretboards should look you guys deliver 10/10. the two long scale indian rosewood fingerboards looks simply spectacular and the ziricote is glorious. I usually dont take the time to write these but this time I had to. Thanks for years of wonderful service guys. And if you can find the guys who helped pick my recent boards, make sure to personally tell them how happy I am."

Bar Fretwire

FRETWIREBarFWBAR

 

Bar fretwire was commonly used on stringed instruments before the turn of the 20th century. It was used on some Martins™ into the 1930's. Bar fretwire is more difficult to install than today's extruded, tanged wire. If you need the wire to be a bit thinner, it can be rolled on a jeweler's mill to thin it out.

Our bar fretwire:

  • measures .059" wide x .157" tall x 23.5" long
    (1.5mm wide x 4mm tall x 59.7cm long)

  • has an 18% nickel/silver composition
    (18% nickel, 20% zinc and 62% copper)

  • has a Vicker's Hardness of HV5/230 (+/-15)
