    Hello everyone. I am new to the tele forum and forums in general. I just wanted to introduce myself and also seek some advice on a problem I am having making cables (see below). I have a 90s MIJ tele and a 00's MIM strat.

    The issue I am having is I can't get my patch cables to work correctly. I am using GLS pancake connectors and Mogami 2319 cable. I think I am somehow shorting either the connector or the wire out when I am soldering them (I am still new to soldering). I connected the wires up dry using alligator clips to hold the wires in place and everything sounds good, but once I solder them all hell breaks loose. I am getting dinosaur noise coming out of my amp from the soldered cables. I have soldered some other cables using Neutrik connectors and they have come out awesome, so I am completely lost as to what I could be doing wrong. Any advice would be awesome.

    Sorry to hear about the problems, glad you are here, someone will be able to help.
    Perhaps not hot enuff when soldering?
