Ted,

Check Ebay (<*ducking*> yes, i'm serious). 
There's a seller over there who occasionally 
offers these up.  I think their User ID is 
4wells.  Don't worry, they're not shady or 
anything (I've bought these things from them in 
the past).

It turns out that Roland *does* make 13-pin 
cables in a smaller size (like somewhere around 3 
or 5 feet, IIRC).  But, unfortunately, Roland 
doesn't seem to sell these direct.  They come 
bundled as extra cables with devices like the 
US-20 GK Unit Selector.

That seller to which I was referring has somehow 
gotten a stash of these things (don't know if 
he's unbundling them from the US-20's or what). 
Every once in a while they come up; you've just 
got to keep a watch out, or try contacting him 
directly.

Oh yeah, I just found the URL to one of his 
completed (sorry!) auctions for a 4-foot GK 
cable:

You might also look around to see if Roland lists 
these as a replacement part, and have your bench 
tech or authorized service center order them. 
They do exist, they're just not very easy to find.

Just a couple of leads, but I hope it helps a little.
