is it alot of work? ive seen some good pickups on ebay go for pretty cheap only because the wire is short and i was wondering if i should go through the trouble of fixing it myself or just get one with good sized wire already.

It's a royal pain in the ass to replace them. Pickups are basically ruined i the wire has been torn or cut too short or whatever. Now if it's just too short to reach the rest of the stuff on your guitar, all you have to do is a solder job.

depends on how much wire is left, at least two inches and i'd go for it, less maby but no less than 1/2 an inch

and when soldering 2 wires together be sure their is good contact between the wires, the solder is there to hold it together not bridge the gap

Is it not just regular shielded 24 guage wire?

Someone correct me if I'm wrong.
