    Guitar cable end pops out of guitar

    Hi Guys,
    Just joined this forum and have a quick question:
    My Custom 22 jack needs adjustment; the plug keeps falling out. I unscrewed the jack and bent the tang of the jack(the part that holds the plug inside the guitar) at an acute angle because I figured it would hold it in tighter, but it still pops out. I took out the jack again and the cable holds tight while outside the guitar but once I slip the jack back into the guitar and plug in the jack, it falls back out. Do I need a new jack or can I just rotate the jack 90 degrees or until it clears the body?

    the jack's pin contact is not getting enough clearance to flex and allow the plug to get fully engaged. Rotate the jack to a point where it gets maximum distance from the guitar body.

    Welcome me to the forum and post up pics of your Cu22!
