The True Value of  Owning JackTight

The 2013 Guitar Repair Survey

Save for the cost of guitar repairs with JackTightIn our recent survey at JackTight USA, we contacted 50 guitar repair shops throughout the U.S. to get an estimate on cost of repairing or replacing an output jack. This would be the cost of not maintaining your guitar jack and possibly having the wire short out. Then, you would have to take your guitar to a repair shop to replace or resolder the output jack.

We called shops in most of the major metropolitan areas including Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York, Boston Miami and shops in Texas, Nevada and Arizona, as well as smaller–sized regions. We called major chain stores and independent repair shops.

We asked the question:

“What would it cost to repair or replace an output jack on a Stratocaster style guitar?”

(We asked about a Stratocaster because this would be the easiest replacement job of most guitars, as the jack is easily accessible.)

From the 50 shops we called the average cost of repairing or replacing an output jack on one Stratocaster was was $22.34.

At $19.99 (plus shipping), JackTight guitar tools would allow you to maintain your guitar over the lifetime of your instrument and save money and time. If you own more than 1 guitar (as many people do), the savings is tremendous. Finally, you will save yourself the inconvenience of having to leave your guitar at a shop overnight to be repaired.
