I am making a DIY guitar and I changed the position of the jack and I need a longer wire.But I am not sure what wire it is exactly.From my observations I think it is a coaxial wire though it really looks like a normal copper wire.I am using passive ibanez pickups and 500k potentiometers (if that matters)
Thanks in advance!

Yeah shielded wire. That would be coax in my book. I used 26 gauge for my less paul. Its pretty small but i read that too thick of a wire can cause resistance.

Too small causes more resistance. The distance is so short in a guitar it's really splitting hairs.

When you split the hairs make sure you have the right hair splitting tool, or the resistance will be out of wack. I recommend at least 28 gauge hair splitters unless you are running 1M pots or a .044 cap. Better safe than sorry.
