Enjoy the benefits of
having a pickup installed in your instrument without having to worry about
damage or loss of value. Our "Vintage Jack" replaces your
standard factory endpin to
make your instrument pickup ready -- NO DRILLING REQUIRED.
We have incorporated the highest
quality stereo output jack available into a precision machined brass end
pin. Now you can properly install pickups in your instrument
without having to drill out the end pin hole or use some other less than
ideal system. A "Vintage Jack" is available to fit most guitars, mandolins,
violins and similar instruments equipped with taper fit end pins.
The "Vintage Jack" is securely retained by the taper fit of the mating
parts -- no adhesives required.

the Special Order Materials.

comes stereo wired* with 18" leads of fully shielded mil-spec coaxial cable and is
ready to be hard wired to your pickups. We include a heavy duty SwitchCraft
or G&H plug
(which must be soldered to your instrument cable) to
