mistermikev Posted December 17, 2020 Report Share Posted December 17, 2020 so... this is a (gulp) rewire of a 339. previous adventures have made me keenly aware of the need for shielding of these wires. dragging said wire through a 339 cavity is going to become very difficult if you tried to use all 2/4 conductor to keep it shielded. really, it'd be a much better plan to use a 4p4t as it would not only give better options, but it would keep all the pickup wires in one spot... sadly 4p4t are very hard to come buy in the size that will fit through an f hole. I have one alpha one left... and for now I'm hanging on to it as the source dried up. So we are getting the most we can out of a 2p4t... and this is going to make shielding the wires complicated. one strategy... is to use 2 conductor for two sets of bridge wires... this works out ok. one two conductor wire will take care of the neck-most wire set for the neck bucker. then it becomes next to impossible to make pairs and using single conductor shielded wire will make this harness into a gorilla. (I know what you are thinking... it IS a gorilla already - fair enough). so... I could rip the shield from some push back wire... and pass perhaps 4 wires through it... not a great option. What I'd really like is something I can wrap around groups of wire after it's wired up (as opposed to passing through). So... could take copper foil and wrap it... then ground the foil at one side... not going to be very flexible after wrapped. Just wondering... any interesting/creative ideas for shielding the wires and remaining felxible? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
