Switchcraft® 1/4'' Jack Sockets

£2.95 - £3.95

Switchcraft® - The name says it all. They began life producing parts for the booming telephone industry - until a certain Mr Leo Fender approached them and began using Switchcraft® jacks in his guitars. They haven't looked back ever since and Switchcraft® jacks are the "go-to" product for guitar techs, luthiers and guitarists worldwide.

This jack socket is the industry standard, offering superior quality and durability over non-branded jacks fitted on many guitars. Its the perfect choice for most standard and high end electric guitars and basses and is the staple for high end guitars.

A solid, high quality jack. A combination of the spring angle and the long lasting contacts ensure a durable jack with a clear and cackle free signal. Available in mono, longer threaded and stereo versions.
