Tascam GA-30CD guitar amp ...

Tascam GA-30CD guitar amp

Technician's Assistant: What's the make/model of your device? How old is it?

Tascam GA-30CD guitar amp , guitar input jack broke, I can solder but wondering how hard it will be to access it when I take it apart ?

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on? What troubleshooting have you tried?

The ***** *****terally broke off & I/4" plug can't be installed. It has to be replaced.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Instrument Expert to know before I connect you?

Once I open it up, how easy will it be to remove circuit board to remove & replace the 1/4" jack ?

The jack is straightfoward to access internally, you just need to desolder the wires from the old jack and unscrew the retaining nut, then fit the new jack.
