The quality of the core is another important factor that constitutes the best guitar cable. It is the innermost part of the cable, and its primary function is to transmit signal from the guitar’s end connector to the other end. On average, a thicker core is the best choice when looking for better signals even if it made of the same material. The best practical material for the core is copper.
