This Yamaha bass, owned by a local school, was brought in due to a faulty jacksocket.
The jacksocket plate had gone, so a replacement acrylic plate had been made.
On inspection, the jacksocket had been rewired with guitar lead, which was the main cause of the fault, due to bad connection joints.
As well as rewiring the jacksocket, a new plate would need to be fitted, as the existing one had broken.
The holes from the old jacksocket plate were filled before the new plate could be fitted.
The cavity for the wiring had been filled with hot glue gun glue. This all needed to be removed before the new wiring could be installed along with the new switchcraft jacksocket
The new jacksocket plate was then installed, finishing the repair. Upgraded screws were used with the jacksocket plate due to the fact that the bass will see a lot of use in a school environment.
