This modern cupstyle Tele® jackplate is milled from brass and has an shiny plated finish. Mounts with (2) screws that are included. No more having to deal with that sharp piece of steel used to secure the old original cups. Super easy to install! The cup is even threaded so no need for the lockwasher and nut from the jack. Just simply screw the jack into the cup, solder the wires and install into your instrument!
