loose jack on my guitar

Discussion in 'Hardware, Setup & Repair [BG]' started by Freaky Fender, Aug 3, 2005.


  1. On my SX guitar the input jack is a little loose. If I move the wrong way, the signal will go dead, and if I throw the slack of the cable away, it'll work. I think something that connect the signal from the guitar to the plug is loose. Anyone have any suggestions?

    Remove the jack and double check the connections to it. If one is loose, it's probably the problem.

    If the connections are fine, then take a look at the contacts. If they are loose, you can try bending them a little so they hold the jack better. If that doesn't work, it's time to get a new jack.
