    Such a simple design, I'm amazed that its taken until 2016 to invent it.

    The shaft is a little longer which will make installation in an ES type guitar easier.

    What I did not see until they arrived is that the it puts a double squeeze on the shaft as well as the tip. Nice!

    Wish I'd known about these before putting the wiring harness in my ES.

    I bought some of these True Tone jacks from Stewmac, got one installed in my Fender USA Strat, one in my Mexican Tele, and one in my BC Rich Warlock guitar, these are the best output jacks you can buy for guitars, makes me wonder why they don't come installed on every manufactured electric guitar, if you've got an electric guitar that has an output jack that's causing the signal to cut in and out, just replace it with one of these.

    I've always had problems with those older type output-jacks with the single tip connection, they always seem to work loose over time and you end up having to bend the tip connection in a bit to give it a bit more springyness, but that usually proves to be a temporary fix, or the tip connection gets a bit worn and oxidized where it contacts the tip connection, and you end up having to use some sandpaper to sand away the oxidization so it's clean and shiny, I also like to tin it with some 60/40 solder and a soldering iron as well for good measure, but these new True Tone jacks are great, definitely worth the money, I'm definitely going to be buying more in future.


    A lot of guitarists spend lots of time and money buying good amps and effects and etc to get great tones, the first thing they should do is invest in some decent jacks and plugs (buy the best you can afford), since it only takes one bad jack or plug to have a detrimental effect on your tone, also buy and use decent quality cable too, a mate of mine has turned me on to using Mogami cable so hopefully this year I'll be able to buy a couple of rolls of the stuff on eBay.

    Seeing as how I have not been banished from this thread for inadvertently lurid posting... I just installed one of these on my Frankenbass, and wanted to see what else these folks have to offer.

    They have a stereo version, which is nice. Gold and Black as well as Chrome, also good. Then I saw that they have what may be the holy grail: A barrel jack that won't fail:

    I have had Switchcraft barrel jacks fail just by putting the wrong cable in. Off-brand barrel jacks fail if you look at them too hard. I modified a perfectly good G&L ASAT to get rid of the barrel jack. Looking forward to someone actually trying this. Could be a thing of beauty.
