It has been years since I've built a guitar. Trying to turn it into a business fucked it up for me.  I'm starting to get a hankering to build again, but I have QUANTITIES of parts that I am never going to end up using. I've been scouring the house to find parts and adding them to a photo album as I do.  (Adding a bunch of stuff today)  I'm trying to keep the prices better than reasonable so I can clear everything out, but I don't remember what I paid for everything, so if a price seems high, make an offer. EVERYTHING HAS GOT TO GO!!! (Buyer will pay actual shipping)

Magnet wire I used this for winding pickups. I think this is 41 awg, (the writing on the tape is REALLY faded) which is a little thicker than what's normally used, but it worked for my purposes. It's just a little easier to work with because it doesn't break as easily. There's probably 1/2lb of wire here. $10?

Magnet wire This is thicker than the AWG41... but I'm not sure what gauge it is. I was using this for winding pickups too. It's thicker than what is normally used, but it SO MUCH easier to wind... and it worked fine for the cigar box guitar pickups I made with it. I don't know why i bought 10 POUNDS of wire though! I think it's more than $100 worth of wire. I think I paid $60 for it. Let it for for $35?


I'd be interested in the Grovers, if you still have them. How ya wanna do this? I do not have Paypal.

PayPal is free?

 Five years ago, paypal screwed up my account. I had to call them to fix it. I tried for days to get ahold of a living being. I finally gave up. They still owe me twenty three cents. Dammit. (Grin)
