Epiphone Dot (ES-335) jack repair

I've just gone to put the lead into my guitar and the jack fell clean through. The washer from the inside fell in, plucked that out through the F-hole. The outside washer and knut are loose too, tried using pliers but the jack is now on a slant and will not come back through the hole if needed.

busted a nut!

I was switching out my strings last night..I had upgraded to a .60 low 'E', I got a half a wind of the string on the peg, and the nut chipped off at the corner. What would go into replacing the nut, and should I go for graphite rather than bone or plastic? Or should I just let the pros handle it...Need input.

sprezel Locking Tuners

I'm interested in replacing my tuners with Sprezels. Is it possible to install them myself, or is to much prescision drilling?

Thanks for the help.

Re: sprezel Locking Tuners

Hi - I have an old American Standard Stratocastor from around 1987 or 88. It looks like it has an older version of your tuners. If this is the case, do you have any parts available? I'm missing one of the lock screws(?)
Thanks, for your time

GOYA NECK RESETTING

where do i find the tool to loosen goya neck bolts... has a square style opening to it

Re: GOYA NECK RESETTING

I use a screwdriver with exchangeable tip, I think the Phillips no 1 or no 2 fits right in. It is a squareshaped hole but I allways use the above. The neck is glued only between the fingerboard and the spruce top, use a hot knife and preheat the top of the fingerboard with steam, or try boiled water wet piece of towel in a ziplock bag.

Ding in body of Strat

How can I repair a small (1/4") ding in the body of my son's sunburst Strat?
Thanks.

Re: Ding in body of Strat

It may sound dumb, but what i did when i ran into the same problem with a guitar i was just fixing up, was I filled the ding with glue and after it dried i leveled it off, then used a matching nail polish color. The sunburt might give you a little problem though
