Seems like a good quality cable, except when I got home & tried it on my Telecaster jack, the plug would not fit all the way in. Packed it up quickly to return to Sam Ash. I'm glad they make returns no-fuss. I'll just buy a better cable & pay the difference if any. I tried the cable for a few minutes with the straight plug into my Tele, and it did sound good, and the straight plug fit reasonably tight & seemed ok. The sound was good. I would recommend this cable, but just not for a Telecaster jack or other similar. The plug isn't long enough.
