    Are you positive it's a mono jack?

    I've never used one of those personally but my guess is that it is stereo.. Just leave the long connector (most likely the 'ring') unconnected. Should be fine.. Or to be sure test with a meter..

    Here's some switchcraft tech drawings to compare.

    That is a mono jack with a cable relief, it looks like. I have one of these guys sitting on my bench for my current build right now. You can solder to it for ground, or not. It's up to you. All you have to do is wire the center lug and then either the other lug or the cable relief (they should be electrically connected internally so don't solder to both, you'll get a ground loop). I love these style, have used them a couple times and will never go back to a normal jack, though I will do locking in the future for certain builds.

    they have a center terminal, ya solder the "Hot" to and the braided shield goes to the solder tab you can see sticking out the back... it's easy.... I mean really easy..
