Guys, we've spent considerable money converting the Les Paul Forum to this new XenForo platform, and we have ongoing monthly operating expenses. THE "DONATIONS" TAB IS NOW WORKING, AND WE WOULD APPRECIATE ANY DONATIONS YOU CAN MAKE TO KEEP THE LES PAUL FORUM GOING! Thank you!
If the retaining nut on the guitar input on a blues deluxe is loosened, will the input wiggle a bit or is it supposed to be mounted tight to the circuit board. I assume a bit of play is necessary just incase the input takes a bash.
If the jack is PC mounted (even if it is PTP, for that matter), you will want the nut that secures it to the faceplate tight. Otherwise, the solder joint on the PCB will be supporting the jack and the cable, which is very much a bad thing.
