Thanks @LSchefman ! Indeed, that was exactly the type of analysis I hope for from you. And I agree with all of it - well, the bits that I have experience with or have a theoretical understanding - I cannot agree nor disagree with your observations of hoopy stiffness that you noted in the follow-up post, but I am certainly amused at the visual in my head! I should pick up a couple of the PRS cables, perhaps at Experience where I can touch and feel them. I use wireless for practice/gigging, and when recording I'm not as concerned, usually running 10 ft cables max, but it might be nice to get a couple for recording anyway, to see if it "ups my game". Or maybe I'll be like "ooh, these cables are all ice-picky, I need my high capacitance Guitar Center specials for smooth tonez!"
