    Hi.

    I would like to make my own pickups, but i don´t know what´s the proper magnet wire.

    I´m dude with enamelled copper (polyester) or enamelled solderable copper.

    Or both?

    I think the second will be good, but the first is cheaper :D

    Thanks ;)
     
  2. either will work fine. you know, the first one is cheaper cause you have to strip the wire yourself.
