    You know what really sucks? Having a brand new set of ReWinds sitting in the box on the parts shelf with no time to install them!

    Yargh.

    Ha! You guys have it EASY!

    I have two PAFs, two early 60's Pat stickers, one late 60s/early70s Pat sticker, two 1979 Pat stamped T-Tops, and two 70's Super Distortions on my parts shelf that I haven't had a chance to even hear half of yet, much less take detailed documentation.


    :D

    Ya, I have a pair, but one needs a coil rewound. I'm in no rush so hoping some NOS 70's wire finds its way to me one day.

    I'm in the same boat... I have James' True '58 PAF sitting here waiting to go into a guitar as well as a Tele body I need to shoot with Nitro and I have had absolutely no time to do anything. :(

    Ya, I keep meaning to ask you what you think of that one, but it's always around 3AM that it occurs to me that I hadn't heard anything.

    You have GOT to put that in something with a 500k / .022 setup and spin the tone knob around!

    Fantastic! Glad to know they arrived. :cheers:

    Yours are regular vintage style braided shield hookup leads.

    The inner core is the hot/signal lead and the braided shield itself is the ground.

    Set them up just like this, and let me know if you have any questions.
