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 medium crown height, this is a perfect fret wire for a wide range of guitars and other stringed instruments. 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 ~10.5" radius basis, which will help keep those ends down when you are installing it. YOU CAN ALWAYS ALTER THE RADIUS BY HAND AS NEEDED DURING INSTALLATION! The size of this wire has a nice middle-of-the-road crown width and height, which makes it suitable for a large variety of guitars and other larger stringed instruments such as banjos, dulcimers and more. The exact exact measurement specifications are below. This wire will fit nicely into a .023" fret slot, which is pretty much the standard for most modern fret wires.
I 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!
This fret wire is great for acoustic and electric guitars, as well as many other medium and larger-size stringed instruments, including cigar box guitars! The 8-inch lengths allow you to easily cut the exact lengths you need.
Here are the technical specs on this fret wire (see the photo diagram for more info):
Crown Height: .043" (1.09mm) Crown Width: .080" (2.03mm) Tang Depth: .050" (1.27mm)
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!
INTERNATIONAL BUYERS PLEASE READ... We ship packages via the U. S. Postal Service, either First Class Mail International or Priority Mail Internation. While these services generally get packages anywhere in the world in 1 to 2 weeks, sometimes it can take longer - this is almost always because the Customs Office in your country delays the package. In some cases it has taken up to 4 weeks for a package to be delivered. We will not consider an item as "lost" until at least 30 days have passed from the time of shipment. Also, you may be responsible for local customs duties and taxes depending on your country's laws. We mark package values honestly, as required by the laws of the United States, so please don't ask us to declare a false value, or declare a package as a gift. If you are an international buyer, please be aware of these realities BEFORE buying.
Recycled Materials... We use recycled cardboard as packaging materials whenever possible. Those of you who care about the environment can appreciate the value of this, and everyone can appreciate the fact that it helps keep our prices lower since we don't have to buy new cardboard for packaging. This may mean that our packaging materials occasionally show some shipping scuffs, labels, printing or other markings, but used cardboard does the job just fine. Hopefully you will find a way to recycle it on your end too!
Best Value vs. Cheapest Price... Whenever possible, we try to make sure we have the best price on eBay for the fret wire we offer. In the rare cases when another seller beats our price by a few pennies, we stand by our claim that our offer is the best VALUE on eBay. Not only do we take the time to make sure our listing is accurate, spell-checked and well-formatted, but we also include my "do's and don'ts" sheet, crammed full of tips and resources, and places you can go for more information. Finally, we are available by e-mail to answer questions as best we can for anyone who buys fret wire from us and needs advice. We certainly cannot answer every question authoritatively, but at the very least we can recommend where to go for more information. With C. B. Gitty Crafter Supply, you can be sure that your items will be well packaged, will ship within 1 business day of your order, and will get to you as fast as the United States Postal Service can deliver it.
