Hey I'm buying a strat body from warmoth, and they're letting me define the routing on the body. Going with S/S/S, vintage hardtail, but I'm not sure what dimensions they're referring to for the input jack. Is that the depth it's recessed into the body? Any real reason to pick a deep recession over a shallower one?
Nope, just pick standard I think?
That's not an option, they're just giving me numeric values, I think 1/4", 1/2", 3/4".
There are different styles of jacks you can use. The traditional strat is the one on the front. Warmoth you can get the side jack. One style uses a oval "football" to hold the jack or the square plate like on a LP. It takes a larger hole for the jack used. The other styles use a different hole. The deep one doesnt use a plate so the hole is different. And there is the tele electrosocket style. If you look at their jacks you will see the difference.
