Good day to everyone here
Been a lurker for, oh too many years to count, and this is the first post I've made. I have some old pickups I have pulled over the years that either sound crappy, are dead, or buzz like a insect nest. I have the urge to rewind them from scratch, as I have a few project guitars I would like to put them in, and I'd rather rebuild a handful of them myself for the price of a single premium pickup. Plus the added satisfaction that yet another part of the guitar was built by myself.
Years ago I found a local supplier of the correct size magnet wire in SA, think they were called WST, but recent searches cannot find them. Anyone know of a local producer or supplier of the correct size stuff? I do not care if it is poly, enamel, formvar, etc, as long as it is around 42 or 43 AWG in size, and is obviously insulated by some form of coating. I'm not really a fan of the idea of placing an order with Remington Industries and wait a month for the wire to arrive, and pay more than the cost of the wire in shipping...
Any help will be appreciated. Thanks in advance!
