    I hope you don't take offense to this, but that is the biggest load of crap in the guitar marketing world right now. I buy that there is a difference between the horrible high impedance cables you get in your starter strat pack. But there is no need to be spending $100 for a frigging cable. There are some heinously overpriced and just downright lies out there right now about "good" cables.

      This^. I know I commented on this thread in the past, but just wanted to repost to point out that I'm still using the same cables and they're still going strong (durable and long lasting for decent price). I've used a few different cables in my years of playing at various price points but there really isn't a huge difference. Currently, I've got a handful of planet waves cables and monster cables (all in the $15-25 price range depending on length), and while I do notice a very subtle difference in tone using the same guitar/same amp settings, they've lasted me years and have not degraded at all. These same companies make "premium" version of their cables for a lot more $$, but there's really no reason to spending a ton of money on cables...

      **EDIT** Heck I think monoprice actually sells guitar cables now. I'll probably pick up some of them next time I place an order. I buy cables from them for everything else. Super cheap and they work great!

        And I STILL haven't found my Monster cables. Lol

        All joking aside I run wireless every single show, I do like the custom length kits from Planet Waves though. Makes pedal board and effects loop runs easy and I haven't had one fail in 3 years now.
