Ideal for wrapping a humbucker after it's been assembled to protect the bobbins. Can also be used with single-coil pickups to protect the windings however, this is not "vintage".

This tape is of good quality. It cuts easily, and leaves your pickup looking well put together.

Perfect Replacement

Both the paper and cloth tape are a perfect replacement for original tapes found on Gibson factory pickups or others such as Dimarzio. Good adhesive quality and correct appearance make these highly recommended. A+ products

I've used both the paper tape and the cloth tape in the pickups I've wound. The tape looks good and keeps the coils neatly protected. I've found especially the strong cloth tape to meet my needs. Bigger rolls and some other colour options would be nice.
