    Default Loose Input Jack - Acoustic Guitar

    The input jack on my acoustic is loose. The jack is one of those that doubles as the thing you put the strap onto. I don't know how to tighten it. I can get my arm in there and I can touch the jack/body with just the tip of my finger, but I don't seem to be able to get a regular wrench in there for this.

    Is there a special wrench for this? I feel stupid asking this, but I've never owned an acoustic with a built-in pickup so I've never had this problem.

    A webcam, needlenose pliers with a 90-degree angle, and a wrench took care of the problem.
