Shielded push back wire

By

Verified Buyer


If you are a beginner or have never used shielded push-back wire I suggest you get a spool of it it takes some getting used to and is not the easiest thing in the world to work with. Also because the 16-inch pieces they sell are too short to copy the tutorial I was following.

Vintage Gibson style wiring

By

Verified Buyer


Not much to say, it's vintage Gibson style braided wiring. Word of caution - the 16" pieces were just barely able to reach from the switch to the jack on my LP. Some off brands or variations in production may cause an issue.

Received the wire very quickly, high quality, no complaints.
They only ship this in 16in lengths and bulk. Little bit of a nuisance but it is what it is.

Will shop Stewmac.com more often. Thank you for the videos

Great for SOME* wiring needs

By

I bought this wire to completely wire a guitar with no wire in it. I used this along with new cts pots and switchcraft 5 way switch and input jack. Everything was great except for the input jack. Some guitars have a relatively small cavity for the input jack and this wire is entirely too bulky for the input jack. Out of luck, I had some old thin red coated wire that worked great for the input jack. So, I do not recommend this wire for the input jack but for the main wires from between the pots and switch, it works excellent!

Love this stuff

I love this style of wire for my guitar cavity. My only complaint is that the wire is 16in and it's a tad too short for the connection between the toggle and the input. Also when you order six, they shouldn't cut six strands of 16 in wire. I would have preferred one cut and I could to desired length.

I am an amateur guitar tech, but a professional guitarist, I wanted a complete overhaul of the wiring. My 1985 Tele had copper shielding installed by yours truly, In 2011 I replace, but kept, the original pickups with Seymour Duncan's Little 59 for Tele and Vintage Stack for Tele. They sell them in a set.

In 2013 I replaced (and kept) the original 3-way switch. At this point, living in San Francisco, CA I wire it horrendously.

The overhaul would keep the Seymour Duncan Pickups, replace the Pots (I was told by Guitar center that humbuckers require 500kOhm potentiometers however he wasn't aware the humbuckers had an electric field the size of traditional single coils as they were the size of a single coil Tele Bridge and Neck Pickups; the Little 59 and Vintage Stack take the amount of wire run around a regular single coil (.5 miles) and wind it directly out of phase with the other single coil in the pickup (using half the length to keep voltage the same and therefore not requiring kOhm Pots; .25 miles wound negative and .25 miles wound positive)), Wiring, Capacitors, Control Plate, Strings, Machine Head (Tuners), 1/4" input jack, treble bleed circuit, knobs, Humbucker Wire, Output Jack, and replaced the previous GC PVC nut with cow bone.

The shielding on the pushback wire made a connection with the ground to the base plate (versus the on going to the output jack). This wasted an hour of my time but is a novice mistake. I was hoping that by using shielded wire I would reduce electrical interference this is my best sounding guitar but I couldn't perform due to it squealing.

I took my time and it turned out great.
