Here's the same advice I gave you a few months ago when you asked about this:   I always come off as a jerk when people ask about upgrading inexpensive guitars, but it's honest advice:Don't buy pickups, save the money......MORE »

By my estimation, you're making a big deal about nothing.  The finish line in photo 2 is normal (in my experience) with guitars that have neck-through, non-finished necks.  Here's my old Carvin:   Photo 3......MORE »

At this point  it's either that you're way too hard on the cable/jack connection while you're sitting down and playing or something else in your setup that's the issue.  Perhaps it's the cable (or a cable between......MORE »
