Input jack, Help please

I've got a Ibanez artcore, AFS75t but the input jack has had to be replaced 5, yes FIVE times, in only NINE months!!! I dont know, why, because I'm pretty fanatical about being careful with my instrument, but also this guitar has basicly the lowest end kind of jack, just on the side, only the nut and washer mouting it, so it keeps unthreading and undiong, and then the jack goes into the guitar, even when I tighten it down, the threads just start to go bald, now this guitar is a 06 (made in the last month of the TBLs production, so only recently did this happen (9 months roughly) so is there something I am doing wrong??? is the a better input jack, I've had two different shops, with some pretty good techs doing the work, or is the answer just..... (gasp)...... superglue???

Cool Re: Input jack, Help please

about 1 or two months ago i was having problems with my input jack so i decided to get a new one. You only need to spend £15 for a good one and it may even turn out very good. I think i might of got mine off Eba.y (sorry i had to put a dot, it wont let me type it right. pretend theres no full stop in that word) , or amazon. but im sure theres other places where you could get new parts. like at the top of the page here at jemsite theres loads of links to stuff like 'guitar parts depot' and things like that. Try there.
