    I think I need to buy a few of these for my older guitars with cracklin' jacks.
    I have no skin in this game and don't even own one yet, but it looks like a phenomenal "why didn't we think of that sooner" idea.

    EDIT: I just ordered 3. About $16 with shipping. One of these is going into my '71 Goldtop for sure. Maybe another in the 66 Hagstrom, which currently makes no sound at all.

    These are favored by Philip McKnight on YouTube also. That's where I first heard of them. One day.....one day.....

    looks like they are only 4-5 bucks if you buy multiples, might be worth a shot next time one needs replacing.

    Do they make a "stereo" version for those with active pups?

    Yeah, not exactly a luxury item. That's why I ordered 3. One is going in for sure, and the other two will be in the parts drawer when I want them.

    I wish they had a barrel jack replacement.

    My Heritage sometimes pops out. Especially if I use my heavy Gibson cable.

    Even just playing calmly for enough years puts wear and tear on output jacks. That one tab that hits the tip just gets bent.

    I clean my jacks about once every 5 years. Even on my oldest guitars and wildest stage antics, I never had a problem with crackling or a jack wearing out.

    The 2015 Gibsons everyone hates have dual tip contacts.

    The jack is the most common weak link in the electronics chain. Cheap pots and switches are usually serviceable, and if they do go bad, there is usually a warning. I put Switchcraft in everything. These look like a great alternative for only a couple bucks more.

    Seems like it couldn't hurt... The ones I'm replacing are over 40 years old.
