Jescar Nickel Silver Fretwire Acoustic Medium (37080-NS)
This premium Jescar 18% nickel-silver fret wire is both beautiful and durable, a perfect finishing touch for your special build or re-fretting job! With its medium crown width and low crown height, this is a perfect fret wire for a wide range of acoustic guitars and other stringed instruments such as banjos, dulcimers, cigar box guitars and more. Jescar fret wire is considered by many builders to be the highest-quality fret wire on the market today, and it is used by many of the biggest guitar manufacturers.
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 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.
This fret wire is great for acoustic and electric guitars, as well as many other medium and larger-size stringed instruments. The 8-inch lengths allow you to easily cut the exact lengths you need.
