I've used many of these, and they're a great way to have a hassle-free, recessed side jack look.
Like everyone else, I'll say it too; This thing is great. The old style just isn't worth the hassle. I'd heard stories of some not threading properly with some switchcraft jacks. Not so. It threads perfectly with the switchcraft jacks stewmac sells.
Would suggest this on any tele-style guitar, no questions!
I should have listened to your recommendation and bought this neat little rig from the git-go. As it turns out, I had to wait a few weeks just to add the socket on my new lap steel and it took five minutes to install when it arrived. Looks great and works perfectly. I'll listen to your recommendations next time.
Finally a solution for a design flaw in the TELE. Fits flush and clean. BIG improvement!
Beats my mickey-moused original cup with a couple of holes drilled through it! Installation was easy, the threaded cup has held the jack absolutely solid. Wish I had found it years ago. Actually is more asthetically pleasing than the original jack too.
Add my voice to the chorus. Unless you need to preserve authenticity of your vintage treasure, this is solid useful. A nice product that I think Leo would've liked.
Who says you can't build a better mousetrap? Finally that crazy cup style Telecaster jack mount can go the way of the dinosaur! These things are the best ! Tight fit, clean look.. you'll never worry about your Telecaster input jack again. I put one in all my Telecasters... you should too !
I like these better than the football style. They just look better and this design keeps the jack from coming loose. That's all you need to know. Great option.
The Electrosocket proved to be a great investment when I worked on my new Tele recently.
In fact, the original jack cup system is the one flaw that should be replaced on all new Teles.
