NoJak Endpin

About This Item

De-electrifying your acoustic guitar? Replace your strap jack with our unique NoJak endpin and restore the traditional look.

No woodworking, gluing, plugging, redrilling or reaming—the NoJak endpin fits the same 1/2"-diameter hole. The Allen-adjustable expansion sleeve gives a secure fit. And if you ever decide to plug in again, swapping back to your strap jack is no big deal.

Guitarmakers: The NoJak endpin lets you drill the same hole size for all your acoustic and acoustic-electric models, with no additional reaming or tapering.

The NoJak Endpin was designed by the Stewart-MacDonald R&D team.

The pin slides into the 3/4"-long plastic expansion sleeve, and adjusts from inside the guitar with the supplied black metal screw. 5/32" (4mm) Allen wrench required.

Required sandling/turning the sleeve down for a Fishman Rare Earth jack hole

By
(Customer's Reviews)


The fishman jack is not as wide as a 1/2" standard jack, so the sleeve had to be sanded down considerably to fit hole and was still snug. Took about an hour of careful work not wanting to damage the plastic. However once it could be coaxed in with the unit loosely assembled, it could be tightened sufficiently even without tools by pulling out gently and turning. The pin covered the hole completely in my case, nice and flush. Looks factory perfect. A half a turn with a 4mm on the inside and it is not going to move.

Nice that it is completely reversible if I decide to put the pickup back in.

Even though it says ebony, it looks like black plastic to me, but I could be wrong.

Jasmine 12 string

By
(Customer's Reviews)


A Jasmine 12 string came into my shop for an end pin. It looked as if a pick up had been removed along with the strap jack and left a half inch hole. I seemed to remember Stew Mac having the nojak but couldn't remember what it was called so it took a while to find. After receiving the part, I noodled with it a bit and found that it needed to be put together loosely and inserted into the hole from the outside. Then I crammed my arm inside and juggled the 4mm allen wrench, pushed the pin in and tightened. Then loosened and pulled the pin out a little and tightened. Then dropped the wrench! Then loosened and pushed the pin flush and tightened some more. It was done! Looks good, too. Black looks nice with the Jasmine's trim. The one thing that may have made this job easier would be a longer wrench with a screwdriver type handle. The job only took less than 10 minutes. Thanks Stew Mac!

I installed ann LR Baggs a couple years back, now I'm selling the guitar without the pickup. This end pin adapter is ideal to restore the strap end pin.

Good bit a small mod needed

I would recommend the base of the endpin itself have a larger diameter to cover the hole completely

So Far, So Good

By
(Customer's Reviews)


I soon realized that there was no way I could get my arm into the sound hole of my jumbo far enough to adjust the screw.

No problem, I inserted the unit a bit from the outside of the guitar, it was loose, removed it, tightened the screw, then it was a bit too tight due to having expanded during the insertion of the screw. Backed it off, and retightened, backed it off, retightened again, alternating a few more times until it was a nice snug, but not too tight fit. I lightly tapped it in, and voila, a new strap pin.

No Jak endpin

By
(Customer's Reviews)


When I first tried to install it I was in agreement with those who said it does not work in a standard 1/2" hole. But I was trying to insert it with the endpin pushed into the spacer too far which expands the spacer and causes it to not fit. The endpin needs to be inserted loosely in the spacer sleeve with the tension screw backed off enough that it does not expand the spacer.Then slide the whole unit far enough into the hole so that the pin itself is nearly flush with the outside of the guitar bottom. This requires pushing on the sleeve with a thin edge (I used a coffee stir stick). Don't push on the endpin or it will expand the sleeve and it won't go in far enough.When the allen screw is tightened it will expand the spacer and it works as advertised.
I suggest it would be helpful to include a set of directions or even put a demo vid on the site here.

Doesn't fit newer Gibson Hummingbird's 1/2" hole

By
(Customer's Reviews)


The 'bird came with the L.R. Baggs simple pickups system. It has the endpin jack and one volume control mounted under the sound hole. The jack hole is exactly 1/2" diameter. The NoJack is too large and will require sanding down the plastic sleeve that comes with it. Not sure what the screw does without a small washer, but I'm going to add one when I get around to doing this install. Anyway, it's the perfect solution for guitars that otherwise normally come with a similar looking end pin. It may require some after-purchase work, but in the end (no pun intended) it'll be worth it.

Does not fit

By
(Customer's Reviews)


Couldn't install it. Advertised as fitting a standard 1/2" hole, but it is oversize, requiring either widening the hole or sanding the plastic sleeve. Widening the hole is NOT an option, since it would be too wide if I ever wanted to reinstall a pickup. Sanding the plastic would just make me angry, since it's advertised that no fitting is required. So guess I'm stuck.
