Authentic '66 Jaguar Cloth Push Back Wire

Post by Stinkersdaddy » Wed Jan 08, 2020 7:47 am

Can anyone help me out and tell me where, in the UK, I can source a set of authentic coloured push back wire to replace the plastic that someone has used to rewire my 66 Jaguar with?

Cheers

They sell it quite cheaply on eBay - some of the colours like orange and blue can be hard to locate though

Yep.

If you can't find a dealer in the UK, here's what I've used - they ship int'l - and it worked beautifully

When I purchased it, they had the other colours... maybe enquire?

When Iwas putting my Jazzmaster together I found an eBay seller doing vintage-correct coloured cloth wiring sets. Can't remember the seller's ID, but eBoogling "Jaguar Jazzmaster wiring" might throw something up.

Those black, white and yellow cloth wires can be found via WD music if I recall it correctly.

I've bought cloth wire from AxesRUS in the UK, but I can't really speak to the quality since I haven't actually used any of it yet.
Also, they only have white, yellow and black, it seems.

The black cloth wire from Allparts or WD is most likley Gavitt wire so the right type.
I should hopefully have all the correct offset colours in soon, the whole wonderful spectrum!
