Size really DOES matter !!

By
(Customer's Reviews)


I was recently asked to build a Tele copy with a customer supplied body. I didn't measure the output jack hole, I assumed it was the correct size for the " direct factory replacement " jack cup I had.. a real mistake. After the body was done, and I was assembling it, I found the Tele cup was way too large for the hole. So I ordered the Eletrosocket from StewMac, and it fit like a glove. One downside, and it's NOT a product issue. It doesn't sit flat on the body contour. After your done making the body, touch it slightly to a stationary disc sander to make a slight flat area around the hole.

Also, place the jack cup so the mounting screw holes are located toward the rear strap button end, and the headstock end. This will keep the screws from coming out through the top or back of the body if it's a home design and a bit thinner than a normal body. I hope this helps.

I love the Electrosockets. I cover Tele's with tooled leather, in the "Waylon" style, and the Electrosocket jazzes up the guitar real nice. A good solid jack mount which I believe is way ahead of the 'cup'. Thanks Stew-Mac!

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?

Neat!

By

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.

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.

Tele Replacement Jack

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 hate jacks in the guitar top!

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.

Sockets

By
(Customer's Reviews)


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!
