Ok, here is my story:

On my Telecaster, the input jack is getting messed up. It was broken a while back where when I plugged my cable in the guitar wouldn't make a noise through the amp. What's happening is the nut that you can tighten inside the input jack is coming loose. When I tighten it, it won't get any more tightened because after you tighten it it just comes back to where it was. What I mean by this is that when you tighten it a little and let go it twists back to where it was. I fear I'm going to turn it too much and mess it up again. How can I fix it without paying 15 bucks to get it fixed every 6 months?

you might be turning the whole input and not just the nut try holding it from the back while tighting it

Wha...? Ask the local guitar shop for servicing?
They are ugly and bastards there though...

That's outrageous.
Their penis is small too, and I am not that desperate
No thanks.

if u look there should be 2 to 4 little screws holding it on.

hopefully ull have enough wire slack that you can gently pull the jack out a little.

A recent study shows that 8% of teenagers listen to nothing but music with guitars in it. Put this in your sig if you're one of the 92% who isn't a close-minded moron.
