Reduce unwanted electrical noise by using shielded wire for your longer wiring runs (for example, the connection between the controls and the output jack). Shielded wires contain inner copper conductors covered with polyethylene insulation, which is surrounded by an outer conductive shield, which is connected to ground.

Single conductor
26 AWG
Copper covered steel conductor
Braided tinned copper shield
PVC outer insulation
0.100" (2.54mm) outer diameter
25 feet (7.62m) long

For short connections between components, use Non-shielded Guitar Circuit Wires or our Vintage Push-Back Wire.

High quality and easy to work with

While the overall diameter is a little narrower than I would prefer, this is excellent wire. It has a bare ground wire rather than a braided ground (my preference for a 4 conductor), but it is also securely wrapped in a separate shielding material that serves the same purpose. It cuts easily and solders nicely. It seems just stiff enough to allow easy routing through access holes, yet flexible enough to take the odd corner here and there while snaking it through a rough, wicked rout on an old cheap-o guitar.

Shielded circuit wire

High quality item! 25' should last me a lifetime! Would wish for different lengths to be offered and different colors like gray.

Great stuff!

Like most others, I used this wire for the long run from the output jack to the control cavity and it works perfect! I've used this on at least 3 or 4 guitars so far and no problems so far.

This the good stuff..RG 174. I used this in two way communications for 28 years and I used it in guitar amps. Works really well in guitar amps leading onto grids of tubes. It's nice and small, fits in tight places. Happy wiring!

Specialized Use

Where I find this to be excellent is that very long run from the LP switch to the jack.It is the outer insulating sleeve that makes this a wire that does not add the worry of shorting in the control cavity. This wire easily strips, "layer" after "layer." Finally, this kind of wire shows up frequently in true vintage LP's.

I use the single conductor on every style of guitar wiring. It's top grade insulation and wire. The conductor wire is 7 strand 22 gauge.

these wires work!

I got both the 4 conductor and the single conductor wire. I really liked both of them. It was very easy to work with these. No problems at all.

Nice light stuff

This is nice light gage wire that uses a wrapped foil shield with a bare shield runner wire giving you what looks like 5 wires. You get red, white, green and black shielded wire with the multi conductor wire and simply stripping apart the multi conductor cable will yield you nice pieces of jacketed single conductor wire, perfect for wiring that Jimmy Page multi push pull pot mod to your LP.
