In your old guitar the screen will go to the barrel, and the center to the tip.  If it is a metal jack, the tip is the one attached to the long arm and the barrel is the part the contains the nut and thread.
So many pickups, so little time

oh, do you mean the actual jack bit, the "male" bit, or the "female" jack socket, which you normally plug a lead into?
