Allparts Switchcraft EP0055 Jack
WD555, 30.04.2017
Allparts Switchcraft EP0055 Jack socket
I purchased a couple of Danelectro guitars around two years ago, (a DC59 mod and a DC59 12 string), both guitars turned out to be a lot of fun and for the price paid I have been presently surprised at the overall quality, the only real problem has been with the jacks which after a year of fairly regular use had started to get a little unreliable and after another 12 months really are knackered and do need to be replaced.
I have used the switchcraft jack sockets before to replace the input sockets on a little Fender Champion 600 valve amplifier, they were very easy to use and soldered easily with the threads being well cut and no rough edges or finish issues on the contact areas and they have worked reliably for a few years.
My only concern is the length of the thread, when I used them on the fender amp it was a fairly thin metal chassis front and there was sufficient thread length on the jack socket, I can see this would also work of fender straocasters of telecasters as the mountings are also fairly thin metal but the danelectro pickguards are thicker and made from fairly thick hardboard so I will find out if the threads are long enough when I strip them down soon and will update this review at that time.

Great replacement
Cesar593, 13.10.2017
I have usede this jack socket to replace old and noisy ones, specially in cheaper and older guitars. They are noise free, reliable and very well built, with good soldering lugs.

Socket to me one more time...
Stephen662, 29.04.2021
Switchcraft, says it all really. A direct replacement for may instruments and an upgrade for some.
This is built simply and to last. I have used to replace a 20 odd year old item of the same make... so, that tells you how tough it is. Nice.

Solid built Jack socket
Guitar64, 30.01.2021
I've used this to replace the stock on my HB SC450 and TE52. Mainly because the stock items felt and sounded fragile when plugging in. This continued to remind me that I had bought affordable guitars despite their great sound and playability. These were easily installed with just needing to solder the connecting wire. The only minor issue is that the socket does not come with a second nut to allow you to set how far the socket comes out of the plate. Still very happy with the result.

Good quality, why buy cheaper junk?
TrEr, 10.06.2020
I've used these sockets on lots of basses and never had any problems. Sure, you can find cheaper sockets but why buy junk to save peanuts? These are good quality and well worth the money (although parts like these always gets relatively expensive when not buying bulk of course).

Sturdy and durable! Recommended.
Kevin_, 05.05.2018
Replaced the broken output jack on my Ibanez with this and it is top notch quality. The quality of this output jack seems a lot higher than the original on my Ibanez.

+ The cable clips in well and holds well once inside.
+ No loose connection problems, even moving/twisting around the cable does not cause any difference in sound.

No negative aspects as far as I know! Definitely recommended; also very easy to solder.

The best $$ ever spent on repair
Tetro Leon Guitar, 16.10.2019
Recently, I've been experiencing some signal issues on my Fender Stratocaster. As soon as I plugged my guitar in the amp, the signal was very weak and sometimes not even sound at all, and I spent most of my 'guitar time' whirling the cable around.
As soon as I changed the Jack, my guitar plays like new!

Quite easy to replace - you'll just need soldering iron and solder.

Really not much to say, the best on the market and the wisest investment for your guitar for a very low price. Don't bother with similar items, this is the best you can get.

The Jack of all trades!

You just cannot go wrong with one of these; tried and tested again and again, they are rock solid and arent the source of any problems.

I use one of these on all of my guitars!
SlipperyNutz, 27.03.2021
The best of the best for output jacks. Keeps your cable in there tightly enough to not accidentally pull it out while playing. It's also easy to pull the cable out without worries of it breaking. I use these on all of my guitars because they're such high quality

Does not fit semi-hollows/archtops,...
jonastielemans, 17.06.2018
Keep in mind that this one doesn't fit any guitar with a thicker wood like my Epiphone ES-335 or other semi-hollows/archtops!
The longer version unfortunately doesn't seem to be available on Thomann. The jack seems to be really good quality though, but doesn't include a locking nut like some other switchcraft jacks do.

Switchcraft is the best
Fheder, 22.05.2019
The final sound depends on many factors, it is essential to have good electronics to have a good guitar sound, in the sound chain having bad electronics can mean worse sound.
I changed the Jack that came from the factory for these, I immediately notice that they look more solid and resistant than the previous ones and no longer make noise

Great product
Georges L, 24.06.2019
It's a jack socket, there's not much to beat around the bush. It's cheap, reliable, and does the job perfectly. I personally have used it on 3 build projects, one of them from 10 years now (and still going strong), never had a single problem with this jack.

Absolutely recommended.

If your guitar cable slips out or you've got a los jackplug connection there or even noise, this will solve it.
Very solid, doesn't bend or flex on normal use and it makes a far tighter connection. Recommended!

Works well
03.02.2015
I purchased the Allpart Switchcraft EP0055 Jack because I had bought an old electric guitar which had been lying in a ceiling for twenty years. Of course the electric gear had corroded and was not in a usable condition.
Having paid 2,95? I didn't expect anything.
The jack was easy to install. The solding and everything was done fast, too.
Even though I use the old guitar regularly on stage, this relatively cheap jack doesn't become loose nor gives any kind of unwanted noise. In my next projects I will use this one again because of those reasons.
A good jack for a good price.

Switchcraft = long lasting
Michael9841, 29.01.2018
I always end up needing to swap out the cheap jacks installed in many guitars these days eventually and when I do I always use Switchcraft jacks because they're reliable.
