Take the back plate off, hold the part of the jack that sticks into the body and screw the nut on. Tightening the nut without hold the actual jack in place will do nothing but twist the whole thing and then the wires can get twisted around and can get disconnected.

if you just bought it, take it back.
don't try to fix it yourself if you don't know what you're doing, you'll void the warranty and be stuck with a faulty guitar.
out of curiosity, what model is it?

It happens to all guitars from time to time. Easy fix... When I got my first Ibanez I had to literally tighten every screw on it they were all loose due to shipping and so forth.

^ yea it just happens sometimes, I'd wouldn't be surprised if the store laughed at you if you tried to return it for that reason.

^I'd let a pro look at it. Once you get into the technicalities of screws...well, it's just a place you don't want to be, friend.

Shouldnt unless your stepping on the cable alot. Try a locking washer and if that doesnt work lock tight that sucker

And its just a guitar dont be scared of it especially not a RG Series its not a $5000 dollar custom... Make it work.......

Edit*** are you actually using tools to tighten it or just your hand.. If its your hand that is your issue. Bust out some pliers and tighten it...

This. Or you could pull the wires off of the jack inside the guitar.
I wondered why the frisbee was getting bigger, then it hit me.
