Hey ultimate guitar people, ok I'm new to the whole guitar thing and I have a question about guitar maintenance: Is it better to leave the guitar cable in the output jack all the time or take it out whenever you're not playing? I've heard that it's better to take it out even though common sense tells me that leaving it in would lead to less wear and tear. I'm asking because I've heard of a lot of peoples output jacks breaking, getting damaged coming loose etc and I would kinda like to avoid that if I can :P

If you have active pickups, leaving the cable in wears the battery even when you're not using it, I believe.

If not, it doesn't matter.

Personally take it out. I have active pickups and that does use battery power no matter what and even if I didn't I wouldn't keep it in cause if you make one mistake it may snap off inside there....

Take it out, the danger isn't immediate. Someone can get their foot caught in the cable and send your guitar to the floor.
