When playing, my amp would make a loud buzzing sound (like when you miss the jack and it touches the metal) so I decided to stop playing.

While pulling out the cord the output jack pieces came off. (They look like a circle and a hexagon with a circle inscribed.)

My common sense told me 2 just put them back on, but that wont fix the looseness and I have no idea which goes on first. Help?

P.S. Its an epiphone if that matters.

My advice is take it to a tech at your local music shop ive had similar expiriences like this and tried home repairs usually just ****s the problem up worse.

It looks like the outside part of that came off. I havent unscrewed the output jack or anything yet.

if that nut just came off, unscrew the whole jack and screw it back on.. easy fix

ok well take the jack off the guitar.

once open, push the little threaded part thru the plate and put the nut back on.


holding the back of the jack at the same time, tighten the nut.

add a locking washer or a dab of clead nail polish on the threads to help prevent a replay of this.

I'll try that. It feels like someone really didnt want this output jack to come out, time 4 heavy duty screwdrivers.

Anyway you can post a pic? Did you hit the plug on the cord against anything you might have actually broke the jack itself.

^well not really. he pointed to and described the nut that holds the jack in place.

to me it sounds like he's already solved the problem.
