You want this partno : 3JK1C12DZ . However you should be good to go with any long shaft stereo jack. The one you posted is mono. Can't find any info, does your guitar have passive/active pups?

The long stereo jacks from GuitarHeads always work fine:

Just because stereo doesn't mean you can't use it for passives. You just leave a lug free.

Any reason I wouldn't just get the mono that's 2 bucks cheaper? The lugs look way differt then stock does this matter? No right?

Re: Need new jack ibanez rg550

Just check two things :
1) write down carefully the wiring on your current jack. Which lug is connected to pot's out pin? Which to the ground? Is there any connection to the 3rd lug (if any)? Keep this for reference.
2) measure the dimensions in your guitar and the two (existing and future) jacks. Is there enough space? To fit the new one and still have room for the wires etc?

Right, the mono jack will work just fine. You'll have to cut off most of the strain relief or it won't fit into the cavity. You'll also notice that the switchcraft jacks do not have the rubber seal. This makes installation harder.

If you want O.E. you should ask [email protected] for part# 3JK1J23
