NOS #8 Black PVC Tubing
This type of black plastic tubing was used by Gibson troughout the 1950's and into the 1960's to insulate the braided shield wire where is passed over the pots in the control cavity.
Identical in Appearance and Performance to Original Yellow Tubing used in vintage electronics and Fender and Gibson guitars. This #20 Gauge Spaghetti Tubing slides perfectly over #20 AWG
and smaller Buss Wire, and is commonly used to insulate the ground wire that runs between the pots in vintage Gibson guitars.
This braided spaghetti tubing is specially made for us in the USA by the original manufacturer, it is coated and finished by hand in our Los Angeles workshop.
Due to the difficulty in evenly coating this tubing, it must be made in 6" lengths. Order by the foot and you will receive two (2) 6" lengths.
The Luxe Radio & Musical Instrument Co. was founded in 2004, as an American manufacturer of early and mid-20th century style electronic components. Through intensive research and experimentation we recreate hard to find vintage electronic parts: sourcing original materials, manufacturers, and equipment to make our products as close to the original part as possible: in appearance, materials, manufacture and in performance. Ideal for accurate restorations and for new builds with a heritage look and feel.
Our business motto is simple: Make high quality, authentic, historic electronic parts available for the people who need them.
