Input jack on Casino


Recommended Posts

My jack would get loose from time to time (actually, I think it is technically the output jack since the signal leaves the guitar there to go to the amplifier).

 

On a recommendation from this forum (sorry, I forgot who) I wedged a small screwdriver in the hole, just enough to keep it from turning, and then tightened the knurled nut. I haven't had a problem since.

I use angle rather than straight ended cable which puts less stress on the jack. Also, if you're not doing it this way run the cable between the body and strap (over the strap button) then leave about a 1 foot loop hanging down below the jack. That creates a strain relief so you're not dragging the cable around with the jack.

i have a problem with the jack on my peerless casino- it doesnt come loose, but it doesnt connect properly and i have to jiggle it- am looking to replace it with a better one and will do so when i change the pickups- in the mean time i bought a 90degree switchcraft jack to replace the straight jack on my dimarzio cable- seems to have fixed the problem-

 

anyone know what brand of jacks gibson use?

 

cheers- billybob

Should Guitar Center have that jack? Also wanting to replace the selector switch as well

 

Not sure they would have what I would get. I would suggest a Switchcraft 1/4" jack and a Switchcraft switch. You will need a long shaft 1/4" jack.

 

AllParts has them:

 

EP-4066-000 - Switchcraft Short Toggle Switch

I don't see the long shaft 1/4" listed on their site, only the stereo one. You will need to call them, I'm sure they have it.

Hi Guys, just registered, sorry for dragging this old thread up!

 

My Casino just had a 'prolapse', the outer nut and washer fell off and the plug itself fell away into the body! Nightmare!

 

My first choice guitar shop wouldnt touch it because it's quite the time consuming ordeal to go in through the pick-up holes, so its in another shop now, at a cost of £48!

 

Has anyone else been charged so much for this? I have only had the Casino 6 months, I'm hoping to redeem some cash on the warranty or something?

 

Many thanks guys

Oh yea! I tack a surcharge on top of the work being done if it's a hollow body. You bet, its very understandable.
