Hey guys, for the past few weeks the input jack on my G400 keeps working it's way loose (due to the cable in it moving around no doubt) I have opened the back up twice and given it a good tightening but it just keeps working it's way loose again, is there a more perminant solution to this problem than just tightening it up?

Thanks.

you could try taking it to a guitar shop near by ... would probably be something simple and cheap to fix

If you didn't try tightening it with a pliers, try that and if you did and it still got loose then you should try getting a new nut because yours might be stripped.

You probably just need a lock nut washer, there like 2 cents.

Replace the nut/washer on the outside, the jack itself might need replaced if something's worn down (these cost about £1.20 and you can solder them on in 5 minutes). I recently changed an Epi LP jack because it was crackling and the new one is uber tight, little/no movement.

i had the persistant probelm on my SG, and my dad fixed it by putting lok nut on it.

I awould fix it soon, cause i have had to resolder my output jack twice, (going to be 3 in about 3 minutes) due to it spinning around inside and pulling the wire loose
Hello

The product you want is called LOCTITE but only use the Green or Blue, the Red is high strength and requires heating before you can undo it.
When you tighten the nut make sure to hold the Jack from the back so it does not spin.

Seems to be a real problem with guitars these days.

Hmm ok I shall look into LOCTITE, how exactly would I apply it? And where?

Just put a few dabs at the top of the threads on the jack and a lillte on the threads of the nut and tighten it down and let it sit for however long the bottle says and thats it.
It will stay in place until you want it to come off.
