I had to replace an output jack on a G&L tele guitar (Those who own G&L's may have experienced this). The plate fit the contour of the body perfectly... no bending needed! Thanks Stew-Mac!
If you're building a custom guitar/bass be sure you have a smooth radius and it is a dream.
I've used these twice on Teles. About the only thing I must say cautionary is that their curve does not match the "lay of the wood" around the output hole, so you need to do a little "hammerin'" to get it to match perfectly. But, if you're careful, all is good and it's a great replacement for the standard 'cup.' The quality of the piece, though, is EXCELLENT.
I like these jack plates.. the finish is of a high quality.
These are excellent for the smaller holes in thinner bodies, etc. But I've switched to 7/8" and the Electrosocket for most side-jack applications.
nice and solid plates.got three of them
Solid jack plate, it's shape wasn't as curved as I was expecting but it took to the curvature of the body without any problems.
Heavy and shiny - just what you need in a jack-plate. For my first project guitar - I placed the jack-hole based on the curvature of the jack-place, so it is of course a perfect match.
How could Stew-Mac miss on this one!
the local guitar luthiers didn't recommend replacing the barrel type input jack only i felt more comfortable with a switchcraft jack.
i drilled out the hole, had a friend solder (i'm not that great at soldering yet) and with the plate it feels great.looks great.
