Qucikie: Wat kind of wire should I use for wiring the output jack of my guitar?


Why I need to know: I swiched out the innards (pickups, pots, outout jacks and selctor swich) in me and my friends old stray copies. We put them back together and they worked fine. When we switched them back to their old bodies, one guitar's output jack wire broke and now it is too short.

Copper is the most common, go for that.

Use stranded wire, too. It's more flexible and easier to work with, plus it conducts a bit better than solid core.

EDIT: Yeah, the same wire can be used anywhere in guitars, amps, or pedals.
