I put one on my '52 RI Tele and I don't have to give it a thought; the jack is connected and reliable. Maybe chrome and nickel options would be helpful?
Installed one of these in my Squier Tele and it fits like a glove. Easy to install. Fender should make it standard issue with any brand new Telecaster.
This thing is neat! It looks great and works. It seems to work with switchcraft jacks only. The shaft on non switchcraft jacks is too thin (asia made) and will not thread into this mount. Not really a problem as Switchcraft jacks are great.
I use these in every electric stringed instrument I build
Fit perfectly into the jack cavity of my Squier 50s Classic P-Bass and eliminated the ever present loose jack problem!
Vintage is nice but problem free is better. These are machined well and problem free after the install. Not much to go wrong.
This replaces the age-old faulty design of the Telecaster input jack. Mine is a USA Standard Tele and jack was already loose in a month. After installing the Stew-Mac jack cup, no more worries about a loose input! Awesome!!
I love these and use them on all of my builds. 1" x 1/8" deep cut followed by the 7/8" hole for a flush fit.
Don't let the name 'Tele Socket' fool you. These fit in the socket holes of plate style sockets on other body styles. I put a black one in a Les Paul Junior build. They fit flush in the hole, held in by internal screws. This avoids the scratches you get from the burred heads of socket plates. By chance, as a bonus, the rim of the socket sits just above the body work.....nice. Try one. Free yourself from the slavish devotion to always fitting components in the traditional way. Take a breath, you can do it!
This is actually a *permanent* socket cup for a Tele. The price is good, installation is easy, and the quality seems exceptional. I'll update this review if it breaks or in 25 years, whichever comes first!
