||Re: Insulating Strat bobbins.|
Dave and all: shorts due to tight windings: yes! It may also happen at the end of the coil.
Shorts to the magnet: I think if the wire has electrical contact to the mag. , the magnet acts like a spring or a rubber pillow that smooths all signals down.
loose or tight coil?: the more you loose - the more you gain! You get highest peaks with them.
But highest peaks can be a pain in the ear and elsewhere.
The best way is somewhere in between.
Differce in tone: Yes, of course - it affects the tone, but it depends on the wire used. Some wires are very critical others not. Try the same kind of wire from different makers . . . . . neverendingstory.
happy easter to ya all

I run about 200 winds of unatatched magnet wire across the magnets to insulate them before winding for real.This works great and eliminates an extra process, involving laquer, tape etc.Its also a great way of using up oddments of magnet wire left on spools.
