    Sources for 42 gauge wire?

    Couldn't decide if this should go here or in Gear; pickups go on the guitar, so I thought I'd go for this forum.

    Anyone have good sources/deals on 42 gauge wire? My dad has been building little cigar box guitars and wants to try winding his own three-string pickups. I know nothing about pickup winding, so if there is anything to look for as far as wire goes, I'd love to hear about it.

    Try these. Maybe someone like dpm, who winds pickups, knows a better source.
