    I am completely rewiring my tele (for the first time by myself) and I don't know which wires I should use.
    I know that the standard gauge is 22 AWG and so I searched on amazon and came up with these:

    Is this type of wire good for a tele rewiring? If not where could I find good cables that ship worldwide (or atleast to Italy)?

    That should work fine. Since its stranded just tin the ends of each wire before soldering it in place. Will make your life much easier.
    Maybe not vintage correct, but nothing wrong with that.

    I haven't noticed any difference in sound with any wire. The electrons aren't picky. I usually use tefzel insulated 22 or 24 gauge since it slides easy through cavities.
