Epiphone Innovations: Non-Rotating Output Jack

We continue our look at some of the key Epiphone Innovations that have revolutionized the House of Stathopoulo and the industry at large over the last decade. At Epiphone we continue to re-think, re-evaluate, and re-invent our instruments. From machine heads to pickups, everything has been improved and in some cases made anew. This month, we check out Epiphone's Non-Rotating Output Jack (also sometimes known as the "no spin jack").

To increase reliability and ensure consistent performance, Epiphone's proprietary Non-Rotating Output Jack features an improved contact shape and heavy-duty spring steel. This "no-spin" design is used on many Epiphone instruments including Les Pauls and Archtops and prevents problems created when output jacks become loose and spin in the output jack plate. This can compromise solder connections to the jack.
