  1. I need wiring schematics or someone to let me know, what is what.. when wiring a flush mount jack.. this will be my 1st.. it has 3 "tips" the long one is on the outside ring ...medium and short one are in the middle.. Im wiring passive... one vol, one tone and a three way switch.. MM pickup... the flush jack is my prob.. thanks .. and Merry Christmas


  2. Typically, the shortest terminal is the tip, then the medium-length terminal is the ring, and the longest terminal is the sleeve.

    Tip = hot..........the shortest lug
    sleeve = ground.........the longest lug
    If you are going passive, that is all you need

    From your pics: the lug with the U bend is ground. The short one is probably hot. The hot tip is not written in stone and varies from manufacturer.
