Wires

Recommended Posts

Hi,

For the pick up's use the wire's that is attached to them.

For the earth wire you can use almost any wire. This can be a single wire. It even can be a bare copper wire. (not advisable though) You only have to make sure that it if it's not isolated it doesn't touch anything that it shouldn't touch.

For all the other connections I think you should use a wire with a shielding in it. I mean the wire has a core and a mantle. The mantle is like a kind of woven copper wire, this has a shielding effect. In other words about the same as your guitar wire, also known as 'noiseless' cable. Not so thick though.

Make sure that your earth wire is also connected to the 'hardware'

The back of the pot's, bridge.

Hope this helps.

Gerard

If you have a Radio Shack around where you live you can also get color jacketed 20 and 22 guage wire that works well :D
