Hehe, funny title!!

*immaturity over*

Well, the nut on my input jack is on an angle, for some reason that I don't know. It happened a couple of months ago and I left it because it actually working better than before - until now. The cord keeps on falling out if there's a bit of movment, and it's really annoying...

Anyone got any ideas on how to get it off, since it's pretty stiff...

either put a socket on it and tighten it up or if the jack itself is broken just resolder it. costs about 1.00

it's only 2 wires if you need to resolder btw

if you tighten it with your hand it will not be tight enough. but a socket on it and use your hand on that - don't put a rachet on it or you may put too much torque

This has pretty much become the standard reference picture in regards to guitar output repairs thanks to Jenny.



You always want to remove the jack before tightening it to prevent the inside from spinning and ripping the wires apart from their solder points.

I've heard a good preventative is to get a thin locking washer from your local hardware store, and placing it between one of the nuts and the jack to "lock" the nut in place so it doesn't loosen in the future.
