Hey guys and girls,

Firstly you need to know that i am quite a noob at all the guitar stuff so be kind haha. On my squier strat the valve where the lead plugs in keeps coming loose which means the sound on the amp sometimes randomly stops because of the lost connection. I have taken it to a shop to get it fixed twice however it still keeps coming undone shortly after getting it back! Surely theres some easy way to fix it? I'm guessing you all are just going to say keep tightening it but there has to be a one-time fix...right?

Thanks a lot.

just buy a new jack and solder the two leads (ground and hot wire). It will be agood fix and it will only cost a bit
