I don't believe that gold is more conductive than copper. But if one was to wind a pickup with gold or silver (silver, I believe is more conductive than both) would that do anything other than break the bank. I do have access to silver wire, wanted to see you guys tear my theory apart :) I can always count on you guys to give great and honest advice. So... Is this something that would make a great sounding pickup or just be like a tin can and a piece of string?
