Vintage Jack

A Vintage Jack is the only way to fit an endpin jack if you don't want to modify the original tapered endpin hole. Vintage Jacks are precision machined in Trinidad, Colorado to match the standard taper of Martin and similar endpins.

Vintage Jacks are available in many materials, including brass, stainless steel, fine woods, and fossilized ivory.

All K&K guitar pickups are available to special order with a Vintage Jack, as are all LR Baggs pickups except those with a preamp mounted in the endpin jack assembly.

For more information, see my Vintage Jack page or email here.

Strapnuts

Strapnuts for use with endpin jacks - available in nickel-plated and gold-plated versions. Please note that this is the strapnut only, and make sure you select the right version. The Switchcraft version is US thread. It may be used with any Switchcraft strapjacks, including K&Ks. The metric thread version can be used with LR Baggs' Italian-made strapjacks. It also fits most Fishman and most Far Eastern strapjacks.

The metric strapnut won't fit on a US fit strapjack; a US fit one will go on to a metric one, but will be sloppy.

K&K/Switchcraft nickel 7.00
K&K/Switchcraft gold 10.50
LR Baggs (metric) nickel 7.00
LR Baggs (metric) gold 12.50
