I've heard braided wire is the way to go for re-wiring an LP. The wires in my Epiphone LP Standard seem thin and cheap. However, electric guitars are passive electric instruments and might not require heavier guage. I'm puting CTS pots and RS Guitarcaps in mine, and would love to have the best wires available. Maybe a new switch and jack too. My Epi tone controls barely function, they are soooooooo bad. BTW, should I do '50s wiring? Can you tell a sonic difference?
