Any other Charvel owners hate the output jack position?
Constantly needs tightening up and have to remove the cable everytime to put the guitar down facing upward.
Unfortunately the new 2022 guitars also have this jack position.

My MIM Chavel San Dimas has that jack. Never a problem. But I do habitualy unplug after use.

I tried to copy the old Charvel angled/recessed type jack on a guitar I made in the 90's.
That is a constantly loose pain in the ass.
Wish I'd used the one you hate.

Loctite Blue could be the fix!

Put some Blue Loctite on it. Otherwise, they seem to be in a typical spot. Also, set it in a guitar stand instead of on the floor. :shrug:
I'm not using loctite to temp fix a design flaw haha.
Guitar stand still supports the bottom of the guitar putting pressure on the cable.

I get that, with 2 Charvels. Just a bad spot for the jack...or the stand.

So I will use the gift card from my wife to buy a headstock-hanging, triple stand. Another band member has one that works well, and it just makes sense.

Blue Loctite is not permanent so no reason to avoid using it.

EDIT
I still see no issue or out of the ordinary with the jack placement (especially on a basic stand). :shrug:

2nd EDIT
Are you talking about one of these 2 goofy things? I could see the 1st being a possible issue but not the 2nd.

Yes it's the first picture design. Maybe that's why the Guthrie signature model doesn't have it (pic 2) as he told them it's a bag of poo design.

your choice.
doesnt take but a toothpick tip worth. i mean a super micro dot worth.
put it on, let it dry, THEN install the nut. all you want to do here is take up
space in the threads not used as actually "locking" it into place. or you can
use teflon tape and trim up the job with a sharp blade when done.
this is guitar 99, the class you take before Guitar 101.
