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.
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.
