Ok so this is going to sound really basic but I've been an acoustic player for quite some years and just recently got into electric, and I just bought an instrument cable that has an L shaped connector but only on one end. Is this supposed to go into the guitar or the amp??

do you have a link to the cable?

Odds are it doesn't matter, though, assuming it's a bog standard mono instrument cable. cables aren't directional, despite what marketing may say.

Agree with the above, unless...

On a guitar like that with the jack input on the front rather than the side of the guitar, you probably want the L shaped end in the guitar.

^ yeah good call. Even on the side, arguably the right-angled jack is handier than straight. But it's pretty much preference either way.

A straight end fits more nicely with guitars like this:
