Plain Enamel magnet wire is copper wire with a thin layer of insulation, and is used mainly in winding guitar pickups. Raw copper is drawn to meet specific size requirements based on the National Electrical Manufacturer's Association (NEMA) standards. This magnet wire meets the NEMA MW-1-C standard for operating temperature (105°C/211°F) and insulation makeup. The insulation is made from Plain Enamel, and protects the coiled wire from short-circuiting.

    I can always count on the guys/gals here at Remington to deliver the upmost quality wire and get it out to me quickly. They’re not the cheapest when it comes to this specialty wire but I can count on them in a pinch when I need to get a specific wire quickly. They also carry every wire that you would need. I’m also happy that they switched back to using USPS as their carrier again. Thanks Remington!
