I realized this probably isn't exactly a subject exactly meant for this forum. There are however I know some people here in the Head-Fi community, that are also guitarists. I just purchased a new guitar from Monoprice that was purchased with the intent to be a "project guitar".
Essentially my goal is to make this $100 guitar, sound as stellar as possible and compare it with others of similar and more expensive price points. I picked up some new caps and pots and a new 5 position switch, along with new pickups, and of course some good nickel strings. One things I didn't pick up was some wire. The question I have for everyone here is to whether or not some wire that I have laying around would be good for such a project. I have several feet of Canare 4S6 Star Quad, which has 4 x 20 gauge conductors. Obviously I'm not going to try to cram the entire cable in. What I'm thinking is to remove the outer sheathing and use just the 4 strands. Are there any flaws to this idea? Any other advice anyone can offer?
Thanks all for your time and help.
Edit: (Forgot to mention that I also bought a new 1/4" jack)
