I'm going to order some wiring for the myriad of guitars I have to work on, and i'm not sure what kind of wiring is best/needed. There are so many kinds... I will basically just need it for pots, pup switch, and plug. I will want it shielded. I have seen many types, with different amounts of conductors and such... I dont know what any of these specifications mean though, will someone fill me in with everything i need to know?

Re: Wires

You don't need shielded wire for pots and switches. 22ga is the usual size for that wiring.

Re: Wires

You don't NEED shielded wire but its worth using if you doing a full re-wire job. Probably best looking at Stew Mac's wire then finding out what you need and ordering it from somewhere cheaper.

Re: Wires

Well what kind of wires do I need to get the job done? Will I need both 4 conductor and this other one - http://www.stewmac.com/shop/Electron...cuit_Wire.html

What does 4 conductor mean?

I also found the 22AWG, you speak of... http://www.stewmac.com/shop/Electron...cuit_Wire.html

So I dont "need" to use shielded, but if it helps with noise... i will probably want to... can I use the shielded 28 AWG for pots and switches?

Re: Wires

You dont need multi conductor for what you are doing.

Unshielded 22 AWG will be fine and 100' will be way more than you will probably ever need.

Don't waste your money on the shielded, it wont do you any good.
