    allrighty, the input jack on my AC15 is a POS plastic little thing that has trouble staying in. and now i believe it is stripped. :-\
    so, i was wondering what i should use to replace it? just any standard jack? or is there some specific type i should look for or something. is it easy to do? (i am handy with a soldering iron ;))

    also, since it is plastic, its hard to tell which one is hot and which one is ground, so if anyone has any info/advice on how to find out, it would be greatly appreciated.

    sorry for the bad picture quality. :(

    a good quality six pole pcb switched jack should be fine. just unplug the connector, de solder the jack, slot the new one in, solder him up, replug the connector and rock on!
