Actual pickup wire
« on: October 12, 2013, 09:40:48 PM »

I'm a relative noob with the Rhodes Suitcase '80 I have and have been looking around for a replacement of the actual wire used for the pickups. Are they G42 or smaller? Exact material? Would anyone know how many windings it has? How many Ohms? Been thinking of DIY rewinding a couple of dead pickups with replacement wire. Of course, I'm ready to buy original NOS pickups but just wanna save a few bucks if it's feasible. Thanks

37 gauge
~3000 wraps
~190 ohms

Roll your own.
