Wire that connects pickup and guitar plays role of delivering electrical signals. Structure of wire is typically divided into inside line and a film protecting the line, and the inside line is largely divided into single line form and strands of many lines. Typically, wire form of strand of many lines is used, this has the advantage of not breaking easily, and the number of strands are important. However, this many interfere slightly with electrical signals. A film, protecting the inside line, is typically made from PVC material, and for vintage pickups, candle waxed clothes are use. Shield line, connecting the ground, is in a net shape with thin lines, and is divided into shapes protruded outward and inserted inside. Pickup’s connecting lead line is typically between 1 and 4 conductor wire line, and shield line is added.

NOTICE: Pickup’s wire length could be adjusted to fit the wire’s type and length. It is suggested to select the wire connecting lead line by referencing identifying the assembly shape of the electrical guitar and referencing the wiring book we provide.
