Pickup Wires Aren't Long Enough


Recommended Posts

I just test fitted my pickups and the wires for the pickup don't reach but a little intor the control cavity.

They come down through the channel between the routs for the pickups (i'm not using a pickguard and get to the control cavity and only extend 1/4" into the cavity, how can I make the wire longer so it can reach the rest of the control cavity.

not to say silvertone is wrong in anyway, but an easier way to do that is to---take your PUP wire and twist the end (as always) take your new wire and do the same, then twist them together, solder, then like bend the 2 at the base to the sides of one of the wires, then wrap it real good with electrical tape. the heat shrink way is a little cleaner but you can make this way turn out real nice also
