Sorry, this is a newby question, but I would appreciate help.
I have a Mexi Strat it is several years old, but in excellant shape. The jack is loose and the nut is not tight to the 'housing'. If I wiggle the chord, the sound cuts in and out with static, which I assume is the result of the jack being loose. The chord plug seems to sit loosely in the jack as well.
Now, How do I fix this?
If I tighten things up, will the chord plug sit more tightly in the jack? To do this do I want the threaded tube to sit further IN the 'mount' or further OUt of it. To do this, I assume I screw in (or out) the threaded tube itself and Then tighten the nut. Is this correct? Is there another nut inside the that needs to be adjusted?
Are there any sites that might have pictures and explanations?
Finally, am I going down the wrong path and is there another possible issue (wear?).
As you can tell, I'm a real neophyte and afraid to touch it until I have some confidence of what I am doing.
Thanks for reading this and thanks for any advice.
