Favorite upgrade for my tele so far.

By

That title might sound a little melodramatic, but seriously, out of my locking tuners, my pickups, my pickguard, and my switch, this has been my favorite upgrade to my MIM Telecaster so far. I replaced the standard output jack with a switchcraft jack (which is awesome), and I installed this jack mount to receive it. The fact that it screws into the body means it won't be moving anytime soon like my old hardware. I don't expect the output jack to have any problems ever again..

Great replacement

The jack mount on a Squire is problematic. This retrofit is great. It did require some shimming, as the hole diameter on the Squire was slightly larger than this piece (metric vs. imperial.) easily handled and the end result is firm solid grip.

I ordered the product and received it a few days later with no hassles whatsoever.

Recessed jack plates

Allows you to conceal the jack location, when you have limited space to place the output jack and a plate would just not look good.
This plate is heavy and looks strong and expensive, implies value.

I used one of these on a recent Tele rebuild. Perfect fit and a classy look.

This is so much better than the regular Jack cup. No more frustration when changing the input Jack and you can use an angled plug in these which is great if you switch from a 335 or SG to a Tele on stage and like to use an angled plug with those as I do.

Don't Suffer and Learn the Hard Way- Like I Did.

I found out the hard way that the regular Tele "cup and clip" do not work with soft woods (paulownia, poplar, etc.). When you tighten the jack in place, the clip starts spinning around, and twisting the wiring, especially with the standard 7/8 diameter thru jack hole. And while a 3/4 hole may work better, the wood is still too soft to hold it in place (not to mention the trouble of working with a smaller diameter hole- yikes!), but you may get lucky, I don't know. With soft wood bodies, this is the way to go, unless your jack is made in China and has metric threads. Just drill two 1/16 diameter holes and tighten with a hex Phillips screwdriver; you don't even need to buy the required clip installation tool. Also, the cup and clip method need to have a flat in that part of the Tele periphery, and radius for the cup to sit flat: you can't just grind/sand when you've bought a painted body, or you've already painted it yourself. Now, if your body is made of hardwood and the periphery is flat in that area with the correct radius at the hole's opening- all before it was painted, use the clip and cup method, but you still have to buy or borrow the installation tool.

Effective solution to loosening output jacks

By
(Customer's Reviews)


I recently purchased a Squire Classic Vibe Telecaster and after having to tighten the nut on the output jack three times within a couple months, I decided to give this a try. It works like a charm. I installed it in about fifteen minutes (and I work slowly; it could easily be done in under ten). It fit perfectly in the original hole, and seems a lot more durable than the rather shoddy original. All that is required is a screwdriver and a drill for the pilot holes (and a wrench to remove the original, if you've recently re-tightened it).
