Length of wires

Hi all,

Just wondering if there is anything special I need to think of when I want to extend the wires of a pickup. Can I simply get another wire and splice/solder it to the existing wire?

Thanks

Yup,just get a bit the same diameter,At least close,and it's always easier to get the same colours too,But extending them won't affect the sound to any degree

Heatshrink tubing is a better bet than insulation tape also

HTH
