the tiniest bit of loc-tite around the threads should do it, seriously the smallest amount. otherwise its impossible to break it loose.

It's probably loosening due to vibrations and cable movement. My Strat does it too. Just tighten it.
I plays guitars.

Don't tighten it with just your hand. It's possible that you could cause the inside to spin and eventually break the solder points in the output.

To make sure you have it nice and tight, you'll actually want to remove the output of your guitar. Then hold the inside portion of the output still, while then tightening the outside nut.



One thing that people have started doing, and makes sense, to prevent the output from becoming loose again is placing a slim locking washer between the outside nut and the output. You can get a locking washer from virtually any hardware store. It'll help keep the nut from becoming loose again once it's properly tightened.
