    I'm still using the one I got with my EVH 5153 back in 2013. Big and chunky with the fattest plugs I've ever seen on a cable, the housing must be the best part of an inch in diameter.
    I'm so metal I shit bats

    I still love that their delay pedal looks just like an old 2290.

    I use Dimarzios, 40$ or so, solid as fuck. The black 3ft ones.

    If you want the ultimate in security you can switch to speakon connections as opposed to 1/4. At either one or both ends.



    I've seen dudes who have modified their guitars to have speakon (or in some cases even XLR for guitar - >amp) jacks instread of 1/4. Thought about doing it myself a couple times too. A lot of bass manufacturers do speakon for amps and cabs but you don't really see it in guitar set ups as much, since guitarists are usually less forward thinking and will stick with something no matter how obsolete.

    Speakons are heavier duty too. Past a certain amount of voltage/current a 1/4 just isn't safe as a speakon.

    Bass stuff uses speakon since 1/4" cable is not allowed in a lot of places now for high power applications because the connectors are exposed and it is-non locking.
