    They should be only long enough to run from the pickup to the pot or selector. Wires that have been cut too short can be extended. If you are not going to install them yourself, there is no need to worry about it.

    They need to be long enough to resell the pickup. Buyers like a lot of wire.

    When I install pickups, I HATE stretching the wire. At least, give yourself some slack.
