I can supply you with most of the components for winding pickups if you'd like to try your hand at it. I am NOT looking to be a retailer for these items, and if you do get into it it'll be cheaper to buy in quantity as I do....

I can now supply you with all of the "vintage correct" hookup wire as used by Fender, Fralin, et all (22awg stranded tinned cloth "pushback" in black white and yellow) and Gibson (single 22awg stranded tinned in black cloth pushback w/ braid shield), This is the same stuff from the same supplier that they all use. (the stuff from Allparts and the like is close but not the same)Pricing is dependent on quantity.

1000' of wire per spool shown here
