it may, but will sound like ****. just coil it up and wrap some tape around the coils.

Try rephrasing your question, with a touch more detail as to what you are trying to achieve and see if you get a response.

EDIT: I see. Can you not remove the plug from one end, cut to length, then re connect the plug?

Means soldering probably, if it is a decent lead.

Jack's usually unscrew, you slide the cover back, look at where the wires go.

Shorten the lead, and put the jack back on the same.

okay. I want a shorter cord.. so I would cut some out of the middle then take the other two ends.. with the jacks on em.. and attach the wires together..

Yes you can

but

just buy a sorter lead?

Don't cut the middle out, do what skeet said: Disconnect the 1/4" jack from the one end, cut to the length you want, and reconnect the proper tip and sleeve connections

yea^
it sounds like you just want 2 cords. (1 being 5ft long) so just go from 1 end of the cable measure 5 ft and cut it. then put two new connectors(trs plugs) on the 2 cut ends. your gonna have to solder. not to difficult though

having a joint in the cable will probably cause some problems. could break and get a bad connection over time(probably quickly if used as a guitar cable)

Hope that helps
