Stereo jack on instrument cable

I accidentally bought a stereo jack for my instrument cable. I assume it doesn't matter. I wired it up so the first section of the tip is live. I assume that is ok. Seems to work.

If you wired up correctly, you have nothing to worry about. I have one installed in my strat because it was the only replacement I had on hand. Works perfect.

Yeah, it shouldn't matter, as far as I can tell. As long as the tip is hot and one of the other two is ground, it should work fine. You could even connect both parts of the shaft to ground if you want; then it would be just a mono jack with a black ring in the middle.
