||Tele rhythm -- what gauge wire?|
I'm rewinding an old Tele rhythm to about 7.5k for a guy. Can you get that much #42 on it or did they use #43?

I believe they were 43, although 42 works fine too. ANd you can fit around 7k of 42 on it from what I remember. Maybe someone who actually makes pickups on a regular basis can correct me if I'm wrong.

I was able to get 10.7k worth of 43 on one I made for a guy who loves it. It was nice and clear but really rude when you dug in.
Just wondering if 43 would be a little thin for 7.5k. Wish I would have checked the old wire with a my micrometer before I threw it out...

I have thin coil around 7.6k #43 and sounds great

Fender did switch to using 42AWG for the neck pickup and rarely got more than 5.5 K Ohm DCR out of them. They quickly reverted to using 43 AWG. You can understand why they did try a change after they were using 42 AWG for just about everything else.
Farnkly, i would stick with 43 AWG and go for a DCR of around 6.9 on knocked down A5 or full charge A3.

I just made an Al2 43ga pickup 7.8k for my 'overly bright' Tele, it mellowed the tone quite a bit.
I can't get enough 42ga on a tele bobbin to make it worthwhile.

43 it is, then. The original wire did look suspiciously thin.
It's gotta be +/-7.5k because that's what he wants -- he likes his neck pu a little "hotter" than the bridge, which he wants around 7.1-7.2.
Can't change the magnets either because it's a rewind.
