Wide, like Gibson jumbo wire but a little taller. Similar to Dunlop's #6150 and SM #0149.

Fretwire is sold in either 4 or 100-foot lengths.4 feet is normally enough for one standard instrument if you're not wasteful, but please check your plans before ordering. For easier installation, fretwire is coiled with the tang toward the inside of the curve. 4-foot sections might be cut into halves for shipping purposes. All of the fretwire we carry will fit into a .023" slot, with the exception of the FW75 nickel/silver wire.

Product Description

Installation Tip: The juncture of the tang and the crown on fretwire is not a crisp 90º angle, instead it is slightly radiused (+/- 15º) We recommend slightly beveling the edges of the fingerboard slots with a needle file so that the fretwire seats properly. This beveling also makes it possible to pull out the fretwire, if necessary, without fear of tearing up wood. A drop or so of water in the fret slot helps lubricate for easier tang entry.
