Yep, most Switchcraft jacks that I've seen come with a nut and washer. An internal tooth lockwasher (to be placed between the jack body and the plate it secures to) can be bought in any Ace Hdwr or Home Depot. Again, thats a mandatory thing to install to prevent the jack from rotating when the nut is tightened.

+1.

An Electrosocket is the best piece ever invented for a Tele. They only accept Switchcraft jacks (or a jack with the same threads as a Switchcraft), but I've seen them sold on the 'Bay WITH a jack.
If I build a Tele, (and it doesnt need to be 'vintage spec'), it gets an Electrosocket, no question.

I've thought of buying an electrosocket, but I'd almost definitely lose it. These little gadgety things are great when you need 'em, but if I don't use it enough, it goes in one of my many "guitar boxes," and that leads to a treasure hunt for me.

The hole is 1\4" so the nut should be about 3\8". The real question is, is it metric or SAE threads.
