Enamel Coated Pickup Coil Wire

As used in vintage Gibson and Fender pickups, this wire is a favorite for repairing old pickups and winding new replicas.

The plain enamel coating varies slightly in thickness, unlike more consistent modern poly-coated wire. This gives individual pickups a unique, more raw sound.

Each 1/2-pound roll has over 25,000 feet of wire, enough to wind 5-6 single-coil pickups, or 2-3 humbuckers.

42 AWG (American Wire Gauge) is the standard coil wire used in humbuckers, Strat® pickups, and Tele® bridge pickups.

43 AWG is used at the Tele neck position and in Rickenbacker pickups. 43-gauge wire requires fewer windings to attain a desired coil resistance.
