Too confusing for me... the guy at NAMM (not Bill) was this one

The latter one had the connectors at NAMM, does Bill himself make them too?
Strange. . . .didn't know about the billlawrence usa guy. Doesn't sell the cables on his website. . . . he does have one pickup that seems to be identical to the bill I know though. . . the L500. Interesting. Maybe Becky and Bill lost their name in the 80s to this cat. . . it appears he "bought" it in 1984-5. . . . . .

Yes - they are both esentially the same exact cable. Same size, contruction etc...
