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

By

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

Verified Buyer


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).

Solid socket mount

This is the best way to mount the jack socket to the side of a guitar. The angled screws really hold well. It is great with a straight plug. Watch mounting depth if it is used with a right angle cord.

on it's own a very nice piece......being it was going in an Ibanez bass and NOT a Fender it did leave a small gap as the Ibanez had a way curvier body than say a Tele.....still, a huge improvement in reliability.

This was a replacement for a unit that was not caught in QA by the Manufacture or on incoming inspection by StewMac. StewMac replaced the unit quick after I phoned and notified them there was a defect. That is what a good vendor should do, it would have been a great vendor who would have notified me that I may have a defective part first.
I have used this type of part on all of my guitars that I have built. It is much easier to install and remove when needed. Plating is 1st rate. I will buy and use again.
