Stripping wires with a pair of scissors isn't the best idea. Well I accidentally cut a few pickup wires too short. Can I just buy some new wires and extend it?

Paitence is needed to do that with scissors. I do it that way too but I also have strippers when i decide not to misplace them.

I use a lighter when I misplace my strippers. Though you have to have some pretty good pain tolerance after you ignite the end let it burn a bit, then grab and rip. Perfect striping.

yea, if you just get some 22 or 24 gauge wire, you can solder it to the end of the short wire and extend it no problem. But I would recommend electrical taping the connecting well, you dont want it touching a ground wire or something

Scissors? Had you missplaced your teeth?
