Making new guitar cables

I built some new guitar cables for testing custom, breadboard pedals.

A new mono or stereo 1/4" jack cable for most electric guitars and basses can cost about $20 for a couple feet. I think this is kinda ridiculous when you consider the basic cost of the connectors and wire (+ solder).

The nicer jacks are $3.41 

The decent plugs are $2.57

Wire is a couple cents as well as solder.




So I'm guessing someone could market 'vintage' guitar cables they make themselves and sell them under the going rate to cut the current market... but who would do such a thing?...
