Thought I'd chime in here, seeing as how this question comes up fairly regularly and I now have firsthand experience. Plus, when one of the jerkoffs here tells someone to do a search it'll be fairly easy to find a direct comparison. They're about the same pricewise -- I think I spend $70 on the George L's and $65 on the Planet Waves. The assembly is very similar -- insert cable firmly into connector, and screw down respective mounting screw/grounding unit. Once you get the hang of it, both should be quick and easy affairs, the Planet Waves get a slight nod for not having to bend the cable for an angled jack. Planet Waves has the advantage of coming with a cable cutter, so it gets points for that too. I can't hear any difference in tone, so I won't comment on the sonic capabilities. Those in the know seem to think they're fairly competitive with one another in this arena, I'll take their word for it. In terms of tight spaces, the Planet Waves are a bit more narrow at the actual connector, you might be able to save an inch across a wide board by using them over the George L's. In terms of cable flexibilty they're both fairly firm cables. Neither wants to twist and bend particularly -- for better or for worse. The George L's smaller diameter and more proximal deviation from the connector however puts it in the overall lead for advantage in tight situations even though with jacks themselves are a tiny bit wider. Last subject, appearance: I think the Planet Waves kit looks goofy. I think the George L's look much cleaner and custom. If I wasn't trying to get this board done for Tuesday's practice, plus had GuiTARGET (love that name, whoever I stole it from) gift cerfiticates, I would've bought more George L stuff to finish off my board, but alas, poor planning, impatience, and limited income means that I get to use both. Questions, comments?
