Flat jackplate for Fender Stratocaster

Postby John Wicks » Thu Jul 14, 2016 3:43 pm

Hi,
I'm looking to purchase a flat jackplate to fit a Fender Stratocaster, (so I can plug in a right angled jack plug) replacing the standard recessed plate that Stratocasters come with. If anyone has any clues on where I could locate such a thing I'd greatly and sincerely appreciate it.

Many thanks,

John

There's this: http://www.mesonline.com/guitar_parts/s ... tml#image7

Or, you can just flip the regular recessed plate over, (installing the jack on the recessed side), and can then easily use a right angle plug. http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-D81PYiTf55s/V ... %2BCup.jpg

Or you could easily make one yourself out of some sheet metal or even plastic.
Maybe I can't fix it, but I can fix it so no one can fix it

Thanks, Peter.
I'll keep looking. In the meantime I'll see if flipping it over, works.
