This is one of the cables I use to help bring my guitar alive. A longer guitar cord dictates that you have a higher quality medium for signal transfer. This is especially true if you are not using pre-amplified [active] pickups that boost the signal and make up for the signal loss. Cables are especially important because they transfer the tone from your guitar without increased interference. The Asterope products help me maintain my tone. Test them out at a shop near you.
