Hello everyone. The mono jack on my 1983 4003 is a bit flaky. This is a mono/stereo bass with two jacks if that matters. Only the mono jack is worn (the stereo jack has hardly been used and does not need replacing). I've tried bending the prongs and cleaning it. I think that the circular part is just worn and is having trouble making proper and continuous contact. I've read some places that the replacement is a Switchcraft 13e and other places say it's a model 11 and another place said it's a 13 (no E in the part number). Can somebody tell me which part to order? Thanks so much

I think that the best solution would be to call Rickenbacker Customer Service with the model and serial number in hand. They will give you the correct info and you can also order it directly and be certain that you are getting the correct part.

Thanks so much. No offense to Ric, but I can literally get the same part shipped to me for about $10 and the same part via Ric is about $30+ with shipping. I just need to know which one of the Switchcrafts jacks it is (11, 13 or 13E). I think that I've narrowed it down to 13 or 13E as I only found one reference to an 11 and the 11 looks different than mine.

Ric must just have a higher margin (and/or cost) than the electronic supply houses. I just think that paying 3 times as much getting it from Ric is a bit much (IMHO) if I can get the correct part #.

Two people responded on Rickresource and said it's #13. I now know what to order! :-)
