nahhhh, if you have a pickgaurd, try unscrewing it until you may be able to see the problem, don't jsut yank on it, you could rip the whole input out or damage the wiring. If you don't have a pickgaurd...well...try gently wiggling and spinning it around i guess, i don't know what could of caused your cable to get stuck

DONT WHATEVER YOU DO TRY TO YANK IT OUT

try gently easing it out if that doesnt work open the back up and try to see what is the problem.

Does your guitar have an unscrewable section over the output jack? if it does open that and you are right on top of the problem.

Or you can just take it into a guitar shop

Well, I unscrewed the jack, and i still couldn't get it out. It looked all normal, I have no idea why it won't go out. I'll probably take it to the shop...

Take the jack plate off. Then you can get at both the inside of the jack and the outside of the jack.

Sometimes you gotta lube it up before you stick it in the hole. Especially if that hole hasn't been used in a while.

Tell it you're smashing it if it ain't cooperating and stop messing around with the hole...

Try GENTLY pulling that little tab of metal pinning itself against the curved part of the jack back just a little, then pull gently on the jack. It should come out, if not... I'm afriad a friend has played a SUPPER prank with epoxy or something, and you'll have to take it to a local guitar tech :| .

Run around infront of a reporter's camera yelling "It lives" and if this doesn't work I don't know what will, mind yo though, I doubt this work and I doubt I have any sort of helpful answer.
