No fumbling, no fishing!
Resoldering a 1/4" jack in a hollowbody guitar is a common job. The problem is reinstalling the jack when you can't reach inside. Guitar techs devise lots of methods, but we like this simple no-fuss solution: feed the Jack Installation Tool through the guitar, plug it into the jack, and pull the jack snugly into place. No fumbling, no strings, no misalignment.
Quickly install a 1/4" jack in a hollowbody guitar when you can't reach inside.
The slim brass tool is bendable and 18" long (457.2mm), to work in practically any f-hole or round-hole guitar. A capture ring prevents the plug from pushing too far into the jack.
Quickly installs 1/4" endpin jacks, too.
Thanks to Julyan Wallis (The Guitar Doctor in the UK) for this idea!
TIP: Before retightening the jack nut, protect your solder connections with Frank Ford's ingenious Jack The Gripper tool.
