They are often found in a package deal with left-handed mugs and left-handed smokebenders...
If the L11 and the Allparts EP-055L-000 are the same, then yes. Make sure the Electrosocket is not metric threaded.
This isn't a good, better or best issue. It's a personal preference decision. I always, and have for years, looped my cord from the guitar over the strap/strap button no matter straight or RA plug. Can't step on it and pull out.
this one is nice as well. Like the shielding and the ends.http://www.musiciansfriend.com/acce...1000002000?pfm=item_page.rr1|ClickCP?pfm=ac-a
I use Planet Waves stage lead with Neutrik plugs into an Electrosocket - no problem.
IT's because 79% of all TDPRI Tele players use their instrument on the couch and a straight plug just gets in the way or even worse, will ruin the couch.
btw, 97% of internet statistics are made up on the spot.
It's getting complicated... One of the eBay sellers said that my plug plate hole may be in metric. So, the Fender electrosockets may not fit a Squire. Aurgh.
Most of the electrosocket jack mounts I've seen come threaded for imperial jacks - Switchcraft being the common one. Some mounts come threaded for metric, but metric jacks are generally inferior quality. The solution is to buy an electrosocket threaded for imperial, and if your jack doesn't fit, swap it for one that does. Double upgrade.
I mean the cup hole itself may be in metric, they say.
That's sort of extreme
Oh yeah, metric jacks are threaded in zig-zag pattern and therefore of inferiour quality.
going imperial, the only thing doubleing is the price for new jack +electrosocket + the time spent soldering
@littlebadboy, all the Classic Vibe series of guitars have metric hardware parts.
the fastest and cheapest way is to get an metric electrosocket.
it will fit, it will be secured by two screws, it will take the existing jack just fine and you won't even have to solder.
That I haven't seen.
Don't be dense. It has nothing to do with the qualities inherent in metric and imperial measurement standards, and everything to do with the material and workmanship standards to which certain parts are made. Switchcraft is top of the line, a guaranteed win, and costs a grand total of $4 if you overpay. You're wrong if you think the OEM metric stuff in cheap imports can compete, but still, it's your prerogative.
Vs. this heinous sloppiness just waiting to catch itself on the weighted end of a boom mic stand.
I recall not liking the electro socket thingy much but I can't remember why now. I solved my issues with a Les Paul jack plate, works great! But, now I am considering a new Professional and this is something I forgot about, I would have to do something about this and I am not thrilled about drilling a new professional for a Les Paul jack!! YIKES!
I'm not dense at all, ... well not yet.
I have used Switchcraft jacks and plugs where ever they make sense.
In studios and live applications. they are solid, no mistake there ...and, they don't cost an arm or limb around here aswell.
You are wrong when you say:" if you think the OEM metric stuff in cheap imports can compete, but still, it's your prerogative."
This isn't cheap import stuff but global standards!
get with the program!
Upgraded to an electrosocket, and everything is now well!
As you can see, I am using a normal right angle plug:
And it now fits with some space to spare:
did you use the existing jack or did you solder in a new one?
I used the existing jack. It still works anyway.
And now that I opened the control plate, I'm thinking about that 4-way mod...
Thanks everyone for all your input!
