Hi there I have a Ibanez s470 and for the life of me i cannot take the guitar cable out right it ends up scratching the finish around the jack area.

Below is a picture of the guitar:

Can someone tell me how to do it right please?

Or is there like a 2" cable lead extension that i could leave in all the time? It has passive pickups so i cannot see that it would be a problem.

Thanks in advance
completely baffled as to why you can`t take the cable out of the output jack cleanly, unless you`re pulling the cable and not the jack.
I admit I've suffered the same problem with the S series when I was testing them in the stores. I could never get the damn cable out.
