Extending pickup leads question

kluson guyExtending pickup leads question
I did a pickup upgrade on my Foto Flame Deluxe tele last night(Basically a 3 SC strat layout with a tele bridge pu). I swapped out the Japanese single coils for some good used US Fender alnico replacements.  
I had to add some extra lead to the neck & middle pickup wires to get them to reach the control area. I used stranded copper wire, slightly smaller guage than the typical Fender cloth wire to accomplish this.  
The results sound a little duller than I expected, I am wondering if it might be the copper wire?  
Any thought or advice appreciated.  
Thanks in advance,  
Kluson Guy
