    New cutlass RS with a loose input jack.

    This was surprising to me. The guitar came very well setup, and the attention to detail is mostly exceptional. It is odd that Something as obvious as a loose jack was able to sneak by.

    The guitar may end up getting returned anyways, but out of curiosity, does anyone know how to tighten the input jack these things?

    Carefully remove the 4 screws in the plate. Carefully hold the jack and tighten the outer nut. Pay attention to the rotation of the jack so that you dont have issues with grounding or inserting the cable.

    Thanks for the advice, worked like a charm. I was nervous about taking the jack plate off, as I am unfamiliar with the systems in this guitar. Obviously, the jack plate still works the same. Duh.

    My cutlass did the same thing after I had it a few short months

    Me too. Fixed in about 3 minutes, then kept rocking.

    Just ordered a new Stingray RS, and super stoked.
    Will be on lookout for this. Thanks for heads up.

    make sure that it has a serrated locking washer underneath - locks it all together snugly and prevents it coming loose again
