    Have played this almost exclusively unplugged overseas. When I went to plug it in to a practice amp, the jack locking nut is gone so I cant push the plug in.

    Guitar Center denies any knowledge of a replacement part. The part they offered was a tad too big.

    Any help here?

    Buy an IMPORT jack off ebay for a couple of dollars and steal the nut and washer from it.

  3. You used to be able to get the appropriate sized nuts from Radio Shack but they’re all closed, at least around here. Maybe an electronics supplier. Although the pack of nuts will probably be just as much or more than a cheap replacement jack.
