I know Dimarzio braids some of their cables and they're pretty good quality. I just use monster cables.

+1 Monster LIFETIME GUARANTEE....and they mean it...also they are highest quality and dont twist up on ya...also you can "train your cables...if you roll them up incorrectly they will twist up, you can stretch them out for a few nights and they will remain straighter....sometimes new cables from a package that have been wound up in for a while will be annoying

Mogami is said to be better but they dont offer the guarantee and they cost like $100 for 20ft.
