What Type Of Wire Do I Need?

Recommended Posts



Either 1.6mm or 1.8mm diameter brass rod. Yours looks to be steel - which you can use - but I think it's too hard to bend and unnecessarily robust.


My suggestion would be that you'll need to take the fretwork end off and unscrew the handstrap, then put the shaped brass oblong strap retainer on. If you try and do it with the end and handrest in-situ, you're almost bound to weaken the strap retainer or bugger up the handrest/fretwork end by trying to force things
