If it is a coax with a wire in the center and a shield outside, the wire will attach to the contact that touches the tip of your plug you insert. The shield will attaach to the part that touches the sleeve of you plug. inspect the jack carefully as they can be foolers. When stripping the insulation back un-braid the shield a little to be able to solder it to the jack. Use a pair of needlenose and a helper to keep soldering heat from going up the braid and melting the insulation of the internal wire. Test unit before putting cover on.
i have an old sg, and this happened to me too. the repair guy told me that inside the p/u, the windings were broken, resulting in a lower output. go on e-bay, and look up a neck pos. humbucker. there everywhere. or do yourself a favor, and do what i did. i have an epi. flying v, and epi. les paul. on e-bay, i bought gibson 57 classics. i put these in both my guitars, and i now have great sounding guitars. you will not belive the difference. good luck, scott
This is a very common problem that I have repaired for many friends. Sometimes the guitar jack becomes loose and gets rotated to the point where the wire breaks and/or touches the cord plug when it's inserted into the jack. You need to remove the access plate/panel at the back of the guitar body and see if the wire is broke or twisted. You may only have to loosen the jack retaining nut and rotate the jack to get the twist out or you may have to remove the jack and resolder the wire back in place. If its broke make sure to solder back on the proper terminal--the one with solder already on it and not the one that the cord plug touches when its inserted. Retighten the jack nut by firmly holding the jack from access side so it doesn't rotate again and cause that undesirable STATIC sound. Hope this helps.
