Introduction: Fixing My Tele's Input Jack

About: I'm back!

The little piece of plastic that protects and holds in place the input jack on my tele has been broken since I bought it. Just today I decided to go about replacing it. I didn't want to buy anything, so I just cut some plastic off of a potato salad container and fashioned a replacement from that. The pictures explain everything.

    You should rather use some piece of metal. Any piece of metal. Otherwise cool!

    And you can also brush metal to make it look cool.

    But pickguards look good in clear plastic

    It actually ended up looking very good considering you fixed with something you found in your recycling bin.

    do you think doing something like that would devalue it?
