The pictures of the Golden Age Tele Pickups on the StewMac site show the start and finish of the magnet wires running perpendicular to the pole pieces and they appear to be tinned not copper. Any ideas why?

I had sent a note to StewMac but hadn’t heard back when I posted. They got back to me since and explained that the exposed wires are leads fastened to the magnet wire. The logic is that there is less wire exposed and the wire that is exposed is beefier than the magnet wire.
