    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.
