Okay, my cords are always breaking, not like in half, just the copper comes off it seems. How is this even happening? I don't yank on the cord when I disconnect it from the amp. But just yesterday my cord cut out totally, I checked and the copper on both ends are connected. I used to be able to wiggle it and get the sound going through, but it's gone now. So, is that cord done for unless, I strip and cut it back and re sadder? Or could it possibly the wiring in my guitar?

Re-solder, yes. And are you using cheap cords?

Buy some better quality cables. don't even have to be expensive, i got a 10ft Rotosound branded cable for £5.95, beats the **** out of a 20ft crappy one.

After you stop playing roll your cables up correctly, keep a jack in one hand, put your other hand about 2ft down the cable and pull the two together then put them both in your left hand with the jack, then repeat, otherwise the copper in your cables can bend and break just like thin pieces of metal, cause thats what it is =]

Buy a better quality cable. I broke about 4 of the cheap ones you get for free pretty easily, not I have some 10 ft. cables that were $10 each, and I've never had any problems with 'em. If you go wireless, like people are suggesting for some reason, expect to either pay a good amount of money or get a crappy system.

I used to break cables about 1 every 2-3 months.

I've had my Dimarzio cables for about 6 and I've had no problems yet. They provide an excellent signal too and when you roll them up they don't curl up when you unroll them.

Monster cables are slightly oversized, they ruin 1/4 jacks over time.

seriously? i was thinking about switching to them. i used someones one time i was impressed with the sound quality.

^ they suck. they sound bad and they break very easily. the best way to go is to make cables yourself. you select the components and its cheaper than a lot of ****ty stuff out there.

I use Peavey XLR cables on my mics. On guitars I use some no name brand ones that I got at my local guitar shop, but they have lifetime warrenties and a gold input 20' Monster cable is what I've been using lately into my 5150. Great sound quality and the cable itself doesn't get all tangled up easily because it's made out of a heavier material than normal cables.

I bought about 4 Fender California leads about 2 years ago, all of them are working 100% and i use them pretty much every day, they cop a fair bit of abuse too. I looked on some website and they're about $8.00US. I don't know much about guitar leads but they do the job well.
