View Full Version : Ubass fret wire.

Before I start hammering frets in, what size fret wire is used on Ubasses?
I am guessing this 3mm fret wire Ibought looks too thick somehow and I should have gone for guitar fret wire at about 2.2 mm or 2.6 mm.

Hi Titch. I'm excited to see what you make.

I've done a few bass ukuleles with bass fret wire, but it can look a little thick. I'm planning on using medium/medium (guitar style) fret wire on my next bass ukulele. It's going to be Tele bass style.
