the cable is perfect for ES335 style guitars, such as my epiphone dot. the 90 degrees angled plug does not stick out in the front, making the body of the semi-acoustic guitar less vulnerable for accidental damages. on a stratocaster you can put the straight part in the guitar and the 90 degree angled plug in the amplifier. it is not perfect, but it works if you want just one cable. cable looks good, feels good and works just fine.
