So I have a BOSS WL20 wireless set up.

Since it will be used on an SG, we all know I need a right angle plug which the BOSS doen't have. Looking for a short, no longer than a foot, right angle male to straight female cable. That way I can mount the transmitter either on my strap or waist. Prefer gold plated.
I can't find some. I think I'm not using the correct search parameters. Even the gear guy at GC can't find one in gold.

So I realized, my best resource is y'all. Crowd sourcing at it's best. What I'm doing is nothing new. And we have pros and ams here that have used this very config.

Any help would be appreciated greatly.

But the straight end needs to be female.

A patch (pedal) cable where you replace one end with a female jack ?

Yes. And I looked under pedal cables w no results.

It's getting frustrating. I can got to clips on youtube and see what I 'm looking for, but....... can't find it anywhere. Arg....

I know I can mod this and that. Can use the item Dec Dan posted and employ a female/female union. But I know what I need IS out there. Just can't locate it.

I missed that part, duh. Looking at the link you posted, there’s a solution to use a double female adapter in between.

I see why you're looking, I wouldn't want that gizmo in my SG output jack. Good way to shear the wood.
Good luck.

And why not just plug it straight in as designed?

Me thinks DrBGood answered that. Tho me thinks the $200+ BOSS would take the hit.
Even an LP will have an issue. And it won't slide into a strat.

I've been using a simple M/F gold elbow but that allows the BOSS to swing contacting the tone knobs. And if I sit, ouch.

I did find this, https://www.rattlesnakecables.com/custom/

But I'm in no hurry. Gonna wait for more input just in case someone knows where one can be had. Plus, rattlesnake custom order likely pricey.

And I do sencerely appriciate the effort here.

Instead of trying to come up with a patch, use the RIGHT tool for the job.

So I *have the BOSS. I could do that but,
I have something very similar in example that has (and this would too) allready cracked the crown on the tone knob as both your example and this (link) are free to swing around.

Not only would both contact tone knobs, they both, while swinging, scratch the finnish. Been there, done that w the micro amp.

These are likely issues pros have had. Ergo, likely why I haven't seen anyone using *only* those configs.

From the BOSS pics, it looks like its in the way of the tone knob too. On the fly, one would need to pay attention when backing off tone. Least that my experience on the SG. Relative proximity. Closer w SG.
I do like the BOSS, just dont wanna break the sucker by hitting it.
Same issue w the micro amp.
