Jescar designs and manufactures robust fret wire made from Gold Evo, Stainless Steel or 18% Nickel Silver. Jescar FW43080 is available in these three different alloys.

Jescar premium German made Nickel Silver frets are easy to work with, conform well with guitar/banjo fingerboards, and are highly resistant to tarnishing. They are durable, strong, and long lasting.

The tensile strength of Jescar Stainless Steel fret wire results in a fret that has the greatest longevity. Its hard and smooth nature means that it never requires polishing, is always smooth to the touch, and is likely to last for the lifetime of the guitar.

Jescar Gold EVO Fret wire is comprised of a copper alloy similar to nickel silver and brass. It is made 100% from the alloy and not just simply plated. On the hardness scale, Jescar Gold EVO frets come right in the middle between Nickel Silver and Stainless Steel.

If you are considering what fret wire to use for a new build or a re-fret and you what 100% guaranteed quality, durability, and reliability, fret Jescar!!!!

Jescars frets create a beautiful alloy finish to naturally protect against premature wear on fret boards and bring a new lease of life to any electric or acoustic guitar. This high-quality fret wire by Jescar is perfect for new builds or a complete re-fret and enhance the overall appearance, while improving the feel and sound of your guitar.

Jescar Fret wire can be purchased in a set of 9 x 8″ lengths (six feet in total) with a radius of ten inches, which is more than enough for one guitar, or in a full pound coil. Frets are available in small, narrow, wide, large, low, & high profiles.

Jescar has produced six feet of durable fret wire that is light weight and radius of ten inches. Featuring a bright and robust finish, each set is designed to make your guitar look amazing, and last significantly longer at the same time. More specifically, 18% Nickel Silver, Gold Evo, Stainless Steel bring slightly different characteristics that enhance the tonality and overall quality of the sound. And this is important because the appropriate hardness will not only improve the sound but also reduce the risk of fret wear and prevent any buzzing or degrading feel on the fret board. As if that’s not enough, the sharp and highly defined barbs on Jescar fret wire bite securely into the fret slots which always improves the performance of a stringed instrument. You can use Jescar fret wire to repair frets with pits and dents on an electric or acoustic guitar or banjo. However, this fret wire can also be used to replace flat spots on the crown which prevents the likes of string rattle, string bends and frustrating intonation issues. Meanwhile, a unique combination of alloys (nickel, copper and zinc) ensures the hardness or toughness of each set by Jescar has a longer lifespan than traditional fret wire.
