If you have a Strat-style input jack, this cable is PERFECT. I have tried Mogami Gold and Planet Waves cables and it felt like I was going to rip the jackplate out of my guitar when removing the cable. This Fender cable snaps in perfectly and is snug. I have read a couple of reviews of people saying that this cable's plug is "smaller" than other plugs and that they "rattle" in the guitar's input. I can't speak for other types of input jacks.
