Looking for the solderless cable jacks which Joe Wright sells? I'm looking for a source for them. I've sent an email to Joe but no responce yet.

Joe,
They're the Bullet cable and ends.
I'll bring up my posting here on the Forum, just look for it.
Thanks!

I could not find any mention of cables/jacks/plugs on Joe Wright's site.

Joe Long: You say you have cable but no plugs.
What diameter is your cable? Or, are there any markings on it?

It's possible that Erv's plugs will fit, or maybe one of the two sizes that George L offers.

The cable is smaller than the normal size guitar cable. I also checked Joe's web site and did not any listed. The cable and jacks that I have were purchased from Joe several years ago at the Texas Steel show.

Small cable sounds like George L's.

Joe: "Smaller than" doesn't really do much good as far as a description. You will need to measure it, and then compare it to the George L specs.

I think that Jack and I are thinking that the smaller George L plugs may fit the cable that you have. If it comes down to it, you could buy a couple of plugs and try them.

Or.......

If you only need a couple of cables, just buy some regular solder on plugs and call it a day. If they are soldered and assembled properly they should last forever.

I talked to Joe and he needs the plugs, he has lots of cable.
My Bullet plugs won't work with his cable, wrong size.

I've never had a cable last forever. Sooner or or later they will quit. Thats the beauty of the George L's. No cutting through rubber sleeves and peeling away covering and shielding and getting out the soldering iron. Just snip off a bit and screw the plug back on and you are good to go.
