Ibanez S540 LTD missing part?

Hi everyone!

I just recieved a 1990 Ibanez S540 LTD, and it appears that there may be a part missing from the output jack. I snapped a photo showing the output jack.

I don't remember there being any part there (you can see an indentation along the ridge of the cavity). Is there a part missing or was this some type of modification done by the previous owner maybe?

I have an 89 540s LTD and the jack looks the same. There is just the center "barrel" of the jack and an outer knurled ring that threads on to hold it in place.

Sorry, I should have been more specific. Not the input jack itself, but the larger, surrounding cutout of the guitar body. In the pick the paint looks like it is chipping, which it is, but there is a defined ridge along the entire circle, as if something was there at some point.

Oh, I see... My '89 doesn't have anything there. I think the paint just get chipped easily in that area. Especially if you use cords with larger diameter connector bodies. A couple of my more expensive cords are harder to get in and out of the jack.

There aren't any parts missing, it looks like someone was just a little rough and damaged the paint surrounding the cutout area for the jack
