Hey guys, A couple of months back I bought a planet waves lead for my guitar. On one end it says "shielded end" and on the other end it says nothing. I dont know which side I should plug into the amp and which side I should plug into the guitar. Does it matter? My old cable had nothing written on it so I dont know.

into the guitar i would think, seeing as its being touched by your body

I have one of your directional cables. Why is the amplifier end of the cable shielded, but not the guitar end?

This configuration provides the best shielding against external noise. The shield intercepts external noise and diverts it to the amplifier ground, reducing interference. Connecting the shield to the amplifier end provides the shortest and most direct path to the amplifier ground and maximizes the shielding effectiveness. If the shield is connected at the guitar end, the intercepted noise is forced to travel through the cable before reaching the amplifier ground; this causes extra noise pickup by the cable and reduces shielding effectiveness. If the shield is connected at both ends, some of the noise can still travel through the cable before reaching the amplifier ground, thereby reducing shielding effectiveness.
