Ok, so for the third time, my input jack got screwed up on my Epi. I don't want to become a regular at my guitar tech, so how do i fix it? The input jack keeps coming loose, which results in the wires coming unsoldered. Is there a permanent fix? And no, I can't afford a new guitar.

That happened on my imput jack too. The guy at my music store just put a smaller nut on it. Or use threadlock?

or don't play the guitar. that will ensure that 100% of the time it wont come out lol

RDX1138 has the best idea. We use threadlocker all the time at work to prevent mechanical assemblies form coming loose over time. The problem is you only need a small drop of it on the threads for it to do its job and it's hard to buy in small quantities. A drop of clear nail polish may be an OK, inexpensive sub.
Moving on.....
