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.

Good product

Works very good and sure beats plugging and redrilling the hole to install a standard tapered end pin. Only downside is that you will need someone with VERY small arms to install the piece on the inside of your guitar.

It does work....

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

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

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.

You need a few different sizes

I ordered several of these as I order many of my instruments drilled for the Fishman type Jack. I discovered that it takes about 10-15 minutes of careful work on a belt sander to sand enough material to allow the unit to fit properly. It is a great concept, but not enough thought went into the research.

I attempted to fill the end pin hole left from a Fishman Matrix in a D28. The insert was much too large and since I did not want to ream out the hole any larger, I used a large washer on the inside of the end block to hold the pin in place.

Sensible solution

This is a great solution to an age old problem. The fitting is secure and no glue is needed. As previously advised, slightly tricky to fit but not impossible and overall well worth the effort.

Nice, Easy Fix

It was no harder to install this than it was to remove the buttonless jack someone installed in my Sigma DR-9. It is a bit tight, but a long allen wrench did the job... no problem. I only wish these were offered in black dot, but oh well. No big deal. Thank you Stew-Mac for coming up with a GREAT solution to this otherwise time-consuming fix.

Tough install

Good product, but tough to get to the allen bolt to tighten it up in the guitar. Needed a pair of vice grips on my regular length allen wrench to get it done. Hard to do inside the body.
