Replicating Long Cable Capacitance

Howdy, folks. I was wondering if anyone had any advice for replicating the effect of a long 60's era coiled cable (think Hendrix)? I'd like to recreate this effect with an active pickup guitar going into the AxeIII. Thanks in advance for any assistance. Cheers.

This is what happens with longer cables:


As you have longer cables, cutoff frequency decreases and Q increases. Exact values will differ depending on your pickup and cable, but that's the overall idea.
Thanks. I fed some of those curves into a GEQ after IN1 and it softened everything up nicely.
