Easy to work with - looks great

This stuff really saved my bacon! I was rewiring an ES339 with a pretty complicated circuit. Parallel/series & phase push/pulls. The humbuckers were also split single(rail)/parallel/series/single(P90) on both PUs. This stuff let me get the job done with no mess at all. Looks great and wow was it practical in use. Regular plastic shielded wire would have been a nightmare and probably looked like a pig's ear by the end of the job. No tinning or partially stripping back, just cut to length, push back and solder up.

Vintage Look

This is a great way to repair vintage wiring or wire something up from scratch. Looks like something from the 50's and real slick to work with.

Shielded Push-back Wire - 16 inches

It does the job well! Long enough to replace the worn cable of a '78 humbucker end easy to solder to both humbucker and pots.

Push back wire

Wire worked great for an inline splice on a '64 Gibson Pat # Pickup. Works well for most restoration projects,was fantastic for this '64 SG.

Great wire,but!

This is great wire, but its to short to feed from the switch to the input which turned a perfect job into a not so perfect job it needs to be at least 20in to do all runs unless you want to buy 50ft? That would be great if I was doing 30 guitars! very poor choice of length, not well thought out. Yes I am a newbie, but if it where not for that, everything else was perfect.

Nice wire, easy to work with, and solders well. Just make sure you puff it up a bit and solder on the side of the braided wire where you are going to put the solder so you don't get into the inside wire and cause a problem.

Great stuff, but...

...just keep in mind that no matter the quantity you order, you will get INDIVIDUAL pieces, not a continout length. For my purposes it worked out, but others may need a contious length in excess of 16 inches.
