    The only way Gibson will ever surprise me would be if they offered decent gear at a decent price..

    The grade of cable that fits a player's needs depends on what they actually need, I think.

    A hobby/ couch player like myself will be throwing much of the money away on anything beyond a Planet Waves American Stage cable at the high end, which is around $50 for thirty feet.

    Someone who is a genuinely serious artist and makes all or most of their living as a guitarist will demand something like a Mogami. These can run around $200 for thirty feet of cable but will conduct, shield, reduce capacitance, and last like few others.

    I don't know that Gibson cables are used widely enough to assess whether the Pure Instrument ones are worth the cost. Could be wrong about that.

    My $.02.

    I think you're on the money. Like a lot of things you get what you pay for with diminishing returns. I have cheap cables and medium priced cables and guess which ones stay coiled until dire needs brings them out.... Nothing kills a jam like having to jiggle the cable until it stops buzzing/starts working.

    When I'm a world famous pro I'm still going to use the 4 for $20 30-foot cloth covered cables I got from Guitar Center.
