So, through use and weather the jack on my LTD is now shot. I'm going to replace it as soon as I know exactly what to use. Is it just a standard Stereo 1/4" so I can solder the battery wire to the extra prong? Or is there an actual "active guitar jack" that I need to pop in there?

That's not right. If you have EMGs you need a stereo jack for switching the battery off when you unplug. Most EC1000 models have EMGs standard.

To answer the original question, there's no special jack you need. Just a standard 1/4" stereo jack.

My Jackson with EMG has the stereo plug. Just open your LTD up and make sure you buy the right part. Also double check all of the connections while you are in there and make sure the solder is good. You can also use some DeoxIt to clear off any corrosion or build up.

Good point. I did not consider active pickups.
