Oh well, now the empty shell of what used to be chocolaty goodness can contain a tasty guitar circuit.

If you have a DMM with a continuity tester just plug a lead into the jack. Touch one probe on the the end of the lead not plugged in. Use the other lead to tap on the jacks contacts. When your DMM beeps or whatever you have found your Tip.

I always do this cause not all jacks have the same layout.

Terrible thread tittle btw.

looks like tab 1 is the one youre going to use for the wire, 2 and three are grounds, or screw holes anyways.
My Gear:
Gibson Faded Flying V
"Dante's Inferno" Iceman
Fender Hot Rod Deluxe 112
etc.

I can't imagine anything worse than shagging to Mark Knopfler.

Maybe shagging Mark Knopfler, but that's about it.

boostdemon, that picture you posted is full of fail.




TS, The upper part of the drawing indicates:

Tip = 2

Ring = 3

Sleeve = 1



For A Stereo connection:

2 = Left

3 = Right

1 = Common (Ground aka Earth)

If you connect this way, you must NOT connect a mono plug to this jack or you will short out the right channel.


To wire this jack for MONO:

2 = Signal

3 = No Connection

1 = Ground / Earth

yeah that top diagram pic threw me for a loop... I was imagining the tip hitting the ground instead of it being the sleeve
