Ive got some Dimarzios coming in the mail for my RG550.


Im probably gonna re-wire the entire thing.


I was going to use Radio Shack's copper hookup wire.

Is this wire any good? I know Radio Shack's stuff is generally cheap, so it worries me.

Also, what guage is optimal? Solid Or Stranded?

or does it really make a difference at all?

Thanks.

If I am not using shielded wire, I use the wires from an Ethernet cable. I just cut the sheath off and have 4 pairs to choose from. The wire is stranded and thin enough that you can easily insert them into the pot openings as well as the mini switch openings. A 10 foot cable will last forever or about 20 guitar wiring jobs. The only pain is that you have to be really careful when stripping the ends.
