One that transports the signal. All these Monster Cable etc business is a rippoff, in my opinion. One that is reasonably thick does the job just fine.

Cream cables are 'try before you buy' and high quality. So you can avoid getting ripped off if you're not satisfied..
Gear:
Ibanez S470 (EMG 81/S/85)
Sigma DMC-15E
Laney VH100R
Laney 4x12 Cab
Ibanez Weeping Demon

True. But, gold conductors really do make a difference.

Don't buy Monster cables; the company is run by a bunch of assholes.

people have different needs as far as cable. for myself, i like something that doesnt add any eq or coloration whatsoever and pushes as much signal through to preserve the response and nuances of the instrument. but basically, nothing you can buy at guitar center(unless you go to a GREAT one).

To be completely honest, I never thought it would make a difference what I used as long as I kept to short leads. Then I bought a cable from Evidence Audio, and became a convert to good leads. The difference is in fact audible.

No, no they don't. The gold gets worn off anyway, and 99% of the signal transfer is still not gold. It really doesn't matter.

The cable does, however. Different cables have different quality, its not BS.

The only guitar lead that's never failed me so far is actually a fender 'Vintage Voltage' cloth-wrapped cable. I really didn't think it'd be especially good in either sound quality or longevity, but i've gotta say it's a great piece of kit!

For patch leads and so on, Planet Waves make decent stuff. There's also tons of custom companies (George L's and Bullet Cable spring to mind) that make great products, but it's a personal choice really....

lol yeah, don't I know it....takes me ages to get them wrapped up after a gig!

Sad but true! The downside to wireless is when you play a really tiny gig in a pub or something....and every guitarist in the vicinity thinks you're a wanker.

Still, they're getting cheaper every day - and in a few years' time we'll probably all be using Bluetooth or whatever....

I have a Fender DVD and theres a tour of the Factory in California that makes American Strats. All of the employees were mexican. So American Strats are also Mexican Strats.
