Jack plug on a SX Bass

Discussion in 'Hardware, Setup & Repair [BG]' started by r6mile, Mar 12, 2006.

  1. My SX J-Bass has a problem, the jack plug is too large so the cables don't always made contact (so sometimes when I'm playing it just stops working). How can I fix this?

    Replace it with a switchcraft. The SX are junk.

    Amusing - I havn't had that problem on mine. \

    Just swap it out I guess.

    A new jack would probably help, or you could take it apart and bend the thing in a little bit so it makes better contact. Buy a switchcraft for under $2 and swap it out would be my suggestion as they're better jacks and not hard to change.
