    They are 2.2 mm wide, narrow and tall.

    Technical talking I haven’t a jar of glue.

    He told me after he had to go to other suppliers cos none did the original wire that I was after.

    I was in England last weekend, could have taken the fretwire with me :D

    Glad it came out great.

    Yeah, you can tell those frets are from the Portuguese fret mines because of the way that they are.

    We use guitarsandwood suppliers who are based in Portugal, including their fretwire. Good price, but more importantly good quality. I’m in the uk so it arrives quickly. But asking a luthier to do a refret on first job is a worry, always test someone’s work out first and ask him/her if he can refer you to another refret they have done recently. As for wrecking your guitar, unlikely it’s all reversible and any chips in the fretboard can be repaired or hidden underneath the frets.
