Try a couple of drops of BLUE Loc-Tite on the threads of the jack.

If you can't find Loc-Tite brand stuff at your hardware supply store, just look for any kind of "removable thread locker". One or two drops will go a LONG way.

I also use it on the tuning machine threads. They don't ever come loose now. :-)

Great tip. :D I actually use that stuff at work - blue, red and green. Definately use the blue, or equivalent, it'll hold your threads, but you can easily loosen the nut when needed.

Loc Tite also works well on a strat or tele style bridge too. Those two little allen screws that set the string height on some bridges will rattle loose with hard playing (like mine). A little drop of Loc Tite will hold the little buggers in place so that wont move out of place from the vibration of the strings. :D
