IMPORTANT REFERENCE - Stranded Wire Types
Tinned, Stranded = Copper conductors that have been coated with tin, and then the tinned strands are twisted together. The strands are NOT bonded together. This is the most commonly used wire in our industry.
A select minority of parts suppliers sell stranded wire that has been fully bonded/coated along its entire length and only label it as "tinned" or "pre-tinned" wire. That is NOT the correct title for that type of wire. If that's what you're looking for, you need to search for "topcoat" wire.
Topcoat = Stranded bare copper wire that has been run through a tin bath, effectively permeating/coating the entire length of the stranded wire. The result is a stranded wire that acts/feels like solid core wire because the strands have been bonded along the entire length of the wire. This was previously less common in our industry, only being used by select manufacturers (Hi-Watt being the most notable). But, it has been growing in popularity in recent years, especially among the guitar wiring crowd.

Good wire and very easy to work with.
Used this with some new pots in my bass. It is excellent, high-quality wire, cloth with covering. Doesn't fray easily.
Contrary to the description, these are not tinned NG Response: "For clarification, this wire is exactly as described in the product description. It is tinned, stranded wire. It seems you were actually looking for 'topcoat' wire, and purchased this by mistake. Sorry to hear you're unhappy with your purchase. Please contact customer service for an RA# to return the wire."
Really easy to work with and is of great quality
Best wire in the box.
Nice and stiff so it stays where you want it, looks great and is still pretty easy to strip. Solders up great, what more can you ask for?
