fguihen Posted May 15, 2009 Report Share Posted May 15, 2009 I recently purchased a tele with the old style socket. The socket kept comming lose, needing tightening after every playing session. To remedy this i purchased and installed an electrosocket. I drilled the holes slightly crooked and so the socket was slightly crooked, in that the lip of the electrosocket was slightly higher on one side than the other. I dowelled up the holes i drilled with toothpicks, let it set and rebored. its less crooked now, but still a little bit. Its barely noticable , and even then only from up close, but it drives me nuts, as I know its there, and its an inperfection in my new guitar. Ive learned never to try any DIY myself ever again so thats something. My question is, can any moderately competant luthier fix this easily enough or should this job be only entrusted to the best? Also, would you get this fixed, knowing that its almost un-noticable and doesnt affect the guitar at all? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
