It is though.

It's braided wire wrapped around a wire right?

A single core, that is braided, so.... yeah.

Coaxial wire

Coax for short. (often just referred to as shielded wire)

One wire is the "hot" and main conductor, the other is the shield and should be grounded at one end.

Now the question is, where would one get some coaxial wire?

Radio shack don't carry any real electronics stuff anymore.

You can just use two bits of wire and tape them together, the wire you pictured is just two bits of wire in one insulating casing to make the inside of your guitar look tidier.

No

That is not the point at all.

What? That's not what shielded or coax wire is...

Yeah it will, the hot and ground wires from my volume pot were like this, and when the connection broke I replaced it with two separate wires and it works fine. I'm no expert, just offering suggestions.

That's great that it worked!!!

The idea behind coax wire is to reduce noise and interference. Your hack way of taping two wires together does not shield out noise.
