Over time the nuts securing the jack socket and the volume and tone potentiometers can become loose and need tightening, or you may need to remove these to perform maintenance on your bass.
When using spanners or pliers for this job there is a risk of scratching the finish of the bass and/or damaging the hardware. Sockets from a standard socket set are often not deep enough to fit onto the nut on a potentiometer.
The grooveTech GTJPT1 Jack and Pot Tool is ideal for these jobs as the sockets are the correct size for the nuts found on most basses and are thin walled and deep so can fit where standard sockets cannot reach.
