Jescar EVO Gold Fretwire Super Jumbo 58118
This premium JESCAR EVO Gold fret wire is absolutely beautiful, a perfect finishing touch for your special build or re-fretting job! It is gold all the way through, so it can be filed, crowned and otherwise dressed as much as necessary. It especially looks good on a darker fret board, so that the contrast is greater, but it also looks nice on lighter fret boards.
This wire set comes in 25 pcs of 7cm 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 about as big as it gets, with the widest crown width and highest crown 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.
It can be used on electric guitars, acoustic & electric basses, and any other stringed instrument that calls for the highest and widest fret wires. The 8-inch lengths allow you to easily cut the exact lengths you need. EVO Gold 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.
Here are the technical specs on this fret wire (see the photo diagram for more info):
- Crown Height: .058" (1.47mm)
- Crown Width: .118" (3.00mm)
- Tang Depth: .074" (1.88mm)
A slot width of .023" is recommended for this fret wire, but somewhat wider may work if you use glue to set the frets in. Be sure to measure the width, height and tang depth/width of your current frets before buying, to make sure this set will fit your intended usage! Please check with your guitar tech/luthier before buying.
