      It depends on what kind of music you play and what kind of tone you want. Take a look at this it should help you decide for yourself. Make sure you don't just look at the numbers, read the reviews on each cable as well.

        i have had a cbi gold rush for a while now and its a great piece. Gold plated jacks and vintage cloth covered cable. I got it from mars music so it is probably more than a couple years old.

            Buy some professional (low capacitance) instrument cable and solder the jacks on yourself. You can have a top quality cable for around $20. Gold plated connectors are not a particularly good idea for guitar cables - it just wears off.
            I don't like signatures!

                Yup.

                Klotz La Grange and Neutrik jacks would be my choice.
                I like my jazz like I like my peanut butter; crunchy.

                  Yeah, either the Klotz or Evidence audio from www.lavacable.com with neutrik jacks.

                  Best cables ever no contest.

                    Can you guys really tell the difference between the sound in cables? Then what about patch cables?

                      Yes, but (speaking personally) generally only if plugged straight into an amp that has a very good clean fidelity, with a clear high-end

                    I like Fender. Sounds good and not real thick. Doesn't cost much either.

                        Bill Lawrence sells 50 ft of high quality low-capacitance cable with 10 solderless connectors (system similar to George L's) for ~ $50. I bought it and the cables I put together are top-notch. They don't look that great but they are very solid and don't color the sound at all.

                          I was using a George L's cable until I read the review I posted ubove on cables. That was when I went back to my Planet Waves cable. Which is better for heavy distortion type of tones according to the Lava cable reviews. Plus that damn George L's cable kept kinking up and it was driving me friggin crazy.

                            I use Planet Waves , I gig quite a lot and never had problems.

                            I'm sure there are other great cables even better than PW but PW ones do a good job for me
