    You all are probably sick and tired of my inquisitive posts, but here goes anyway:

    I need to know what type of wire I need for wiring a Jazz bass (with DiMarzio UJ pups, incase you needed to know) in V/B/T with a mini toggle for Ser/Par.

    I bought some wire from Radio Shack, a 3 pack of 20 gauge stranded wire. Is this all I need?

    You can use it, though it's horrible to work with as the insulation melts at too low a temperature. I use Belden that I get from Mouser for about $30 a roll, but for smaller quantities you can get either cloth or PVC insulated wire for a lot less.

    basspartsresource.com and acmeguitarworks.com are two good sources.
