I have a great bass. the sound is good now that I burned but the jack is always spitting out my cord like chewing tobacco.

how does one fix this problem?

preferably without spending money >_>

tighten the nut holding the jack in the bass? duct tape cord in place?

open it up and bend the "p" shaped bit of metal inwards.



T in this diagram. It probably wont have an R.

yeah, just bend it inwards. have known people who replace the whole thing because of this easily fixable problem.

was wondering if there was an easier way, because i get the feeling i'll need to take out the volume pots as well because the cable will be too short.

For the hollow body, VERY CAREFULLY insert a narrow flat blade screw driver (e.g. 1/8 inch wide tip) through the hole where the plug on the cable goes.

The idea is to "catch" the screwdriver tip between the bend of the contact for the tip of the plug.

It may help to look into the jack's opening with a penlight and perhaps a magnifying lens first, so you can get an idea where to position the screwdriver.

Do small bend changes until there is "enough" tension to hold the plug on the guitar cable in place.

Some jacks are made of really cheap material, and they will not hold their position or even worse, can break off. Be patient.

ok, thanks.

I knew there was an easy way.
