As used in vintage Gibson and Fender pickups, this enamel-coated pickup coil 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.
43 AWG (American Wire Gauge) is used at the Tele® neck position and in Rickenbacker pickups. 43-gauge wire requires fewer windings to attain a desired coil resistance.
