    Found part? Jetpack Beacon?

    I was playing guitar and looked at my cable and realized the end looks alot like the jet pack beacon. I've never seen any older instrument cables that have ends like this but possibly some other type of cable end?

    If I remember well it's suposed to be some kind of dental tool. I read that some time ago in a thread that I can't find right now, I have searched it but I don't know where it's

    But your guitar cable end really looks like it, mine doesn't

    The dental tool is the borden connector.

    I believe the part on the gauntlet is a dental expander. I actually noticed what looked like a borden connector on the inside of a tool the last time I was at my dentist's office.

    Hehe The curse of this hobby is that you start seeing things that remind you of certain parts of Boba Fett. I see things reminding me of Boba all the time around me. Soooooo.... You are not crazy, you are just hooked on Boba

    There was some discussion here concerning the the Beacon and posssible origins. Dunno if anyone has done any further research on it or not???
