Did Gibson ever use a 3-stranded braided wire on their pickups? To be clear, I am referring to the strands of wire comprising the braided outer shield. The 70s/80s pickups that I own are 2-strand and I see that early PAFs are also 2-stranded. StewMac currently sells a 3-strand replacement wire. Is 3-strand braided wire absolute proof that the wire is aftermarket and evidence of a repair?
