just ordered one from stewmac. Hoping it will be a permanent solution to a loose output jack.
It will, and if you want to be absolutely sure you can add a couple drops of blue Loc-Tite to the threads.
I did too, and discovered my existing jack's OD is too small! So now I have to order the matching jack.
Get a 4 way switch while you're at it, and maximize that tele
They should all come stock with the electrosocket and the 4 way
There are two types: imperial thread and metric thread.
Generally--if you have a MIA or MIM Fender, the imperial thread version is what you want. Any other Tele copy made overseas will most probably require the metric thread.
You won't regret it.
Love 'em! One of the immediate upgrades I did on both my Teles.
I installed one on my only Telecaster (my main guitar for gigs) along with a new Switchcraft jack. That was 15 years ago (500 gigs probably) and it is fine!
Can do very well without the 4 way...
Sorry to hear you don't appreciate awesome
They are awesome and very solid. Too bad Fender doesn't buy the patent and install them.
Elegant solution to what is arguably Leo's most questionable design choice. Mr. Electrosocket should be awarded a Nobel Prize.
I set mine up to accept a 90* angled plug. Fits just right.
Great, simple ingenious fix for a coomon psroblem.
All three of my Teles have them.
I see the merit and benefit of the Electrosocket, and I'm not bashing it,
but I have 4 Tele's with the stock jacks and have yet to have a problem with them...
I do have a Warmoth Tele that I put the Electrosocket in when I built assembled the guitar.
Seemed like a good idea at the time... and it's holding up as expected.....
... however I now have the StewMac tool for installing a stock Tele jack (I do repairs sometimes on others guitars).
I didn't have the tool when I built the Warmoth Tele, which is why I used the Electrosocket.
I think it's a clever and elegant solution, I just don't seem to need it on all my guitars...
I just put a plate on mine so I can use a right angle plug. I always bumped the straight plugs when I played sitting down.
Switchcraft makes a long jack that makes with the regular cup great for me.
I have used the Electrosocket quite a bit, but these days I prefer the Rutters cup.
In my opinion it just looks cleaner.
I have one in every one of my partscasters.
I like them a lot. I put them in most of my builds including this es 125t ish thing.
Fender's greatest crime is that they don't put an Electrosocket jack in every Tele they make.
The original jack is crap.
