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.

Sellin my Martin

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.

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

So Far, So Good

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

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.

It does work....

By
(Customer's Reviews)


The NoJak does work but requires quite a bit of modification to fit into end pin holes made by a standard 1/4" acoustic input jack. A ton of sanding is required to make the plastic cowl fit with the pin inserted at the proper depth. For the customer that wants the flexibility of replacing with a jack at any time, this is certainly ideal. For the customer that simply doesn't want an installed pickup/jack, I would rather fill and re-drill for a standard strap button.

Just what I needed

By
(Customer's Reviews)


I decided to remove my UST pickup after a good number of years (I never liked the idea of having a clunky 9v battery in there). Since I don't play out often enough, I decided to invest in a good mic to do the recordings with. Minor point, I wish there was one available with the black dot like my original but the quality is great anyway. Big plus is the flexibility to go back if I ever wanted to.

Did the job admirably

By
(Customer's Reviews)


I tore all the electronics out of my 1997 Gibson Early J-45 to make it lighter and to let the saddle sit lower in its slot as it was kinda high and to, hopefully, improve the tone. So, I had this gaping hole where the jack was and this was the least expensive filler. I had absolutely no installation problem like some mention here and the ebony looks original for all intents and purposes. Couldn't be happier.

Difficult to use

I found this rather difficult to install. I like what it is trying to do, but a better design is needed.
