I saw this little guy and thought it would be perfect for my Telecaster. For those who haven't seen one before, it's an output jack that is bowl shaped. It also screws in at an angle with two small screws; that way it virtually never loosens.

So, for those of us that have a hard time finding the hole (Chris, Dave, etc..), the 1/4" tip (Chris, Dave, etc..) is guided right in every time via the curve in the socket.

It is 7/8" standard hole sized, and threaded for Switchcraft jacks. It replaces the nut on the jack. I, however, kept the nut on the opposite side of the jack.

Onward to the install!

New jack required for proper threading.



Bust out the Helping Hands :yesway: Helps reduce finger searing when I'm taking pics while soldering.



There we are.



The jack. It's made from aluminum.



Looks like serious business huh?



Success! :cool:

It's a really good idea to replace that nut with one or two star washers to prevent it loosening over time.

That is certainly an improvement over the standard Tele jack.
