LIkely. If it's 20 gauge, I'd say yes. 24, maybe not. Most guitars are wired with 22 gauge wire, I'm thinking...

I've wired up a few guitars with bell wire.  It works just fine.  I like how it stays where you put it, although it can be a little more brittle than multi-stranded wire.  I've not had any noise issues but I always paint the cavities with conductive sheilding paint.

(This - the picture shows stranded core, but it is solid as in the description.)

Yep, you can do that instead of using screened cable, but given most guitars do not have shielded cavities...

Interesting -- I've never used shielded (screened) cable on the interior of a guitar unless it was that stuff coming from the pickups themselves. I use bare wire to connect the grounds on pots, for example. The wire on '59 Bursts, for example, is cloth covered push-back wire, which is NOT shielded.
