Fret Wire

Jescar fret wire for building or repairing guitars, basses, and other fretted instruments.

Jescar's NS fret wire measures HV 200 on the Vickers hardness scale (compare to 150-180 for most competitors' NS fret wire.)  Gold measures HV 250, and Stainless Steel measures HV 300.  The finest frets in the business!
