So i have two cables (pictured here: http://imgur.com/wrFECTd ) and 3 guitars

cable A works when pluged into an epiphone les paul, a squire strat, and another knockoff guitar
cable B works when plugged into the les paul, and the knockoff, but does NOT work with the squire strat.

so i know cable B works, and i know the strat works, but when used together, no sound comes out. just buzzing.

I noticed if you look closely, he tips of the cables are not shaped quite the same. the curves on the tip of cable A are a bit sharper than B.

Do you think thats why?

Anyone else experienced anything like this before? Its so strange to me.

CrashThePaul Yep. If the jack clip in the guitar is a little loose on its grab, the slight variances of cable tips can cause some cable to work, but others not to work. I would just try bending the jack clip inwards some before replacing it. The clip is the bit of the jack that grabs onto the tip of the cable.

Ok so i bent it in quite a bit, it worked for a second or two, then back to just buzzing.
i suppose ill just buy a new one since jacks are relatively cheap.

Thanks guys

That means it's lost it's springiness and is bending when you plug in rather than flexing.  Replace the jack on the guitar.
