Orange / green pickup wire?

Post by mjet » Tue Feb 13, 2007 10:13 am

Angela's has a pretty wide selection of pickup hookup wire - black, white, red, blue and yellow - but nobody seems to have green or orange. Anyone know where one might find some?

Yes, the cloth-covered wire is what my friend is after. I suppose dying is an option...

Angela does have green wire or at least she had some 4 weeks back  (I bought 15 metres  ... yeah I know enough to last a life time ....exactly)

But the green wire is 18 gauge, not 22  like the other colours ... still perfect for JM/Jags

3. GREEN cotton covered 18 gauge wire for filaments in vintage Fender and other classic amps. Waxed just like the old stuff, stranded, tinned for easy soldering. Good replacement for that broken solid core wire in your old tweed Pro. MADE IN USA. $.99 PER FOOT, ONE HUNDRED FEET FOR $80.
relaxing alternative to doing actual work ...
