On sale today Jan 30 2012 on meritline.com: Fender Custom Shop Vintage Voltage 10ft tweed guitar cables - $9.99 (vs. about $17 on ebay) Free shipping from China (maybe order must be over $10), Ground Expedited Service $1.99 http://www.meritline.com/newsearch.aspx?SearchTerm=fender+custom+shop+9.8ft+guitar+cable Various colors Also similar 20ft cables $14.99 (vs. about $22 on ebay) http://www.meritline.com/newsearch.aspx?SearchTerm=fender+custom+shop+19.7ft The web pages say "Random Colors" but also let you pick a color. I talked to Meritline and learned that in this case, "random" means "assorted". I picked several different colors and the order seemed to go through OK. Meritline also has some bass strings on sale today: Fender 990 L 4 Bass Strings 45-90 NOS - $7.99 D'Addario EXL170-5 Nickel Bass Strings - EXL170-5TP, Medium 5'S - 45-130 - $12.99 (vs. $16.10 on ebay) http://www.meritline.com/newsearch.aspx?SearchTerm=bass+strings The Fender strings package pictured has some misspellings. Maybe that's why they weren't sold years ago. I'd guess they're real NOS. You can read a little bit about those strings here: http://www.talkbass.com/forum/f16/good-deal-fender-990l-studio-bass-stings-$8-99-a-765136/ I've bought lots of generic computer/audio cables and various LED trinkets from Meritline and haven't had any real problems. I once got a defective item and they sent me another immediately. Shipping from China can be a little slow sometimes. I haven't seen musical equipment like this on Meritline before. Maybe because it's catagorized under Home > Home & Decor > Guitar Accessories.
