LTD jack question

I have an old LTD bass with active pickups and an atypical output jack that needs to be replaced. Instead of the metal parts being screwed onto a metal ring they’re inserted a black plastic box. I can’t find an exact replacement. Is this just a cheap generic jack that I can replace with a switchcraft?

Here’s a pic of the jack. Note that it is currently jury-rigged with electrical tape that keeps the broken plastic intact enough to be playable.

Yep. They're wired identically to the metal ones.

That's just a typical Switchcraft style enclosed 1/4" stereo jack. So if you wan't an exact replacement they are easy to find and cheap enough. Otherwise, your question has already been answered.
