    Why don't you just use george l cables, they sound way better and last much longer than any other cable Ive used. Also they are solderless and are easy to change size or if you get the kit you can make the cables all custom lengths.

    Do they have these in most stores or do you have to get them online?

    I don`t like signature gear in general but signature LPs drive me batshit. The LP is a Les Paul signature model. Just something about doubling up on the sigs bothers me.

    I don`t like strat based shapes. It`s not a deal breaker because so many good guiars use them. But this is mass madness you maniacs.

    Any Fender shape, now that I`m thinking about it, is awful.

    I don`t like all the tuning pegs on one side of the headstock. Split em up.

    Don`t like trems of any sort. I also don`t like that they are called trems. Tremolo is fluctuations in volume, not pitch.

    Ive never seen them in any of my stores but I highly recommend them, I didnt expect to hear a difference but I actually did once I got it haha. I just need to find the money to outfit my whole rig with the cables now.

    I slightly dislike peaveys thanks in part to their ugly pointy logo. I like their old one better.

    Try out some Cannare or Mogami custom cables, you can get them for under $1.00 a foot at Redco Audio - Redco Audio Home Page. Use some high quality Neutrik jacks and you can make cables that go for over $100 for about $10. You just have to make four small, easy solder connections per cable.

    George L's cable is pretty awesome, it sounds good and last pretty well, but it's crazy overpriced considering it's only "advantage" is the solderless connectors.

    You can get Mogami (look at reviews online, some consider them the best out there) cable for as little as .36$ a foot compared to George L's $1.95 a foot. The Neutrik connectors are cheaper as well at $3.74 compared to George L's $8.25.

    You could literally re-cable your rig three times over with Mogami or Cannare compared to George L's, and still have enough for a couple packs of strings, a case of beer, and a steak to grill up. :lol:

    Not hating on George L, they make GREAT cable, and they're solderless system is fucking awesome, I just don't think the prices are comparable to the product. I've used some George L cables, and still have some lying around, I find their pre-fab cables to be a pretty good deal compared to other brands out there.

    Happy to spread the word man. :)

    Everyone should custom cable their rig. The capacitance you remove from your rig by shrinking cable runs can make a huge difference, especially on more complex rigs, or those with a lot of pedals/loops.

    Also, Pro Tip, if you know you need 20 feet, order 25 feet. At first cutting the cable can be a bitch, so you'll probably have to cut the same end a couple times. You'll get the hang of it though. :yesway:

    My Nikes did make me jump higher and run faster!:bowdown:

    For some reason I hate Fender products. For no real reason.

    I hate Gibson's cause...well they are Gibson.

    And Marshall Amps (not cabs).

    I dislike the fake gold hardware too.

    I refuse to ever play a 6505 or anything of the nature.they're fuzzy shit and lack the tone I need.they sound dull as shit.
    I hate dean due to the whoring of dimes name and for the fact I could give two shits about dime.
    I also hate dean for those god awful headstocks.
    Their designs look like shit too.
    I despise anything fender.utter twangy shitballs, I hate it.

    Marshall JCM series,tonal shit.
    Active pick ups.cold warmthless shit that's thin and plastic sounding.only belongs in basses IMO

    Anything by Dean and any guitar that has an ugly headstock no matter how nice the rest of the guitar(ie, love teles, hate the headstock, same with anything by G&L)....especially guitars that have 4 pegs on one side and two on the other(ernie ball/music man and the like)...either even it out (3 per side) or all on one side. I can't stand something that looks like an afterthought...or no thought at all.
