There doesn't seem to be any Live Wire Advantage cables on the Ebay.co.uk site, which is really strange. I found this, but I'm pretty sure it's not from a store. Still, should do you just fine.

Kinda short and used IMO, pretty sure OP is looking for something slightly better. All the Bullet cable variations are available on that ebay site. I still stand by that recommendation. It's really not that much of an investment if guitar/bass/etc matters to you.

Regardless, still good to show him what they look like so he doesn't get those weird Live Wires. No idea what those are.

Yup, you're right, I can spot Live Wires from across the room.

I think I'm going to buy a cable from Planet Waves. It's just for home practice.

Did you already get the cable?

If not, here's some more food for thought.

The best connectors are Neutrik. Live Wire uses them, but they come in various grades. The regular Live Wires have the ones that someone was talking about unscrewing easily. The blue cable had some that look like better Neutrik connectors. The thing about that blue cable is that it did seem fake. That's not their current logo and usually their cables are black with blue heat shrink at the ends--at least the standard grade.

As for Bullet Cables, they are great, and worth the extra few dollars. Fender also makes good coiled cables, as does VOX, but the Bullets are much heavier duty--I use my Bullet Cable as my main stage cable and bring a Fender along for backup. On larger stages I either go wireless or I plug in a straight Live Wire Cable with a coupler.

I also have Monster and Planet Waves straight cables. The Monster looks pretty, and I use it at home between the pedalboard and amp. I bought it with my first guitar before I knew better (not worth the money). I use the Planet Waves one on stage between the pedal-board and amp. Now all I buy is Live Wire, and sometimes I replace the standard Neutrik connecters with the better ones; you can get them for between $2 - $6 each. I'd buy Bullet Cables again for the guitar, but only Live Wire for mic, patch, speaker, and straight instrument cables.

I've also used Peavey and mid-grade Hosa mic cables. Hosa uses a Chinese variant of Neutrik for the connectors (Rean) in their Pro line. They use real Neutriks in their Elite line. Peavey uses real Neutriks. The Peaveys are OK, but the Hosas were too thick and stiff. The mid-grade Hosa connectors are OK, but the low end ones suck.

Hope this helps.
