So I want to rewire a new agile I just got because the wiring is crap.
I noticed its all pretty thin wire and I was wondering if I used some 18 gauge wire would I noticce a difference in the tone of the guitar? ex. more bass, more treble.

If you were dealing with much higher voltages or amps then there would be a difference in ga. But with the very small voltages in guitars the small ga of wire issued isnt gonna make any difference.

Larger wire doesn't help tone. Inside your humbuckers they use 28awg wire to connect the leads to the coils so anything larger than 28awg is more than you need. When the wire gets too big it can cause excess hum but when it's too small it makes it easy to break. I think 22awg is a good balance between extra hum and easy workability but when using 2 conductors insulated wire or 4 conductor wire I will often use wire that is 26awg simply because it's more readily available than the 22awg.
