1. The Gear Page is run by musicians for musicians. We listen, we learn and if we misstep we are not afraid to do the right thing. We proposed some changes to the Emporiums. Based on feedback from members, we have decided to not go ahead with those changes. However, it has also highlighted that we need some community input into what is working and what is not working for members here. Primarily focused on the Emporiums, we'd like input on your thoughts about TGP and how things work in the Emporiums for you and how you'd improve them. The discussion thread on the is here!

    The Electrosocket just feels really solid when plugging in. Easy to install. Looks great. Pretty much nothing to dislike about it!

    So all you have to do is to remove the current dish on say a MIM tele, and then screw this one onto the jack that is already in place? No soldering?

    Correct.........take your "dish" out & the retainer inside the hole. Screw the electrosocket on to your jack, then screw the electrosocket into the guitar. No soldering required.

    Just make sure it has threads to match your jack, US or metric.
