"In reading the various responses, I have begun to wonder if the "back angle" you are referring to is the slight downward angle of the neck (from body to nut) when viewed from the side. In traditional luthier terms, this is what is referred…"

"My fat fingers have a hard time stripping insulation from 24 gauge without cutting the wire. 30 gauge would be a real challenge for me. If you can handle stripping then you're go to go."

Tom T replied to James Pobog's discussion Wiring question
"30 gauge can certainly handle the current output from a pickup. The problem is that it is so small it is a pain in the ass to work with."
