    Lowish price, angled guitar cable at 12’ or longer, anyone?

    Any suggestions?

    Rapco/Horizon. Very well made, top-quality cable and metal plugs, and reasonably priced.

    Stay away from the foo-foo starbucks brands like Monster. Way overpriced and the gold plating is a sham (it does nothing for your signal unless both jacks it plugs into are also gold plated). The whole "oxygen-free copper" thing is also a sham. Copper alloys must have oxygen in them to work properly.

    Also, avoid the stuff with the braided cloth overwrap. It makes the cable stiff; loops stand up and they become a tripping hazard...and it starts to look pretty ratty through use.

    Plain black rubber jacket and metal Switchcraft/Neutrik plugs are the way to go.

    Be careful selecting an angled cable if you want it to fit a tele. Most cheap ones don't and lots of spendy ones don't either.

    Livewire comes in 10 foot and 20 foot (maybe 15 foot too) in standard angles of 45, 60, and 90 degrees.

    I went with Mogami. Fits my tele.
