RG3120 output jack replacement
I recently purchased my first Ibanez, RG3120. It feels, sounds, and looks awesome. The thing is, its output jack was loose so I bought a genuine Ibanez jack to replace it. Its part number is 3JK1J23, which was used on every RG3120s from 1997 to 2004 based on my research.
While the new jack looks identical to the images around internet, I found out that it looks slightly different from the old jack. The old one has smooth exterior around the rim, whereas the other (the new, genuine part) is knurled around the rim.
I am unable to find any information about variations on this particular part. Does anyone know if there has been any change on this part? I am very curious about this as I wish to keep every part close to original.
(I am wondering if the jack had already been replaced at some point, with a non-genuine part. But then I found a couple of other images of RG3120, with the plane jack installed).
