This is a great jack! I'm very pleased with how well it holds my chord; I don't ever worry about coming unplugged. It also sticks out about an 1/8" more than my original jack which makes it easier to attach my strap.A few installation tips:1. Look Carefully at the smaller 3 pins (for stereo or TRS chords). They are all different lengths. The short one goes to the tip, middle to the ring, and long to the sleeve.2. If you're not used to soldering, have an extra set of hands... you probably won't have a lot of extra chord to play with.3. If possible use a continuity meter to test your connections before you start. I plugged in a 1/4" chord to my old jack and tested the continunity of the end of the chord to the jack so I could tell what color wire I had to hook up to which pin.

Used on an acoustic guitar pickup unit.
Plugin is well constructed but has no instructions on which 2 of the 4 solder lugs to use.
Called the manufacture they told me the wrong lugs to use. I switched cord wires between the 4 lugs until found the correct combination to use.
After finding the correct lugs unit worked well.

Waste of my time

Comments about Ernie Ball 1/4" Stereo Acoustic Endpin Jack:

It doesn't come with an electric diagram or an instruction manual, and from the way it is designed there is no way you can tell the differences with the ends where you solder the wires on. You only have 6 total possible ways of soldering of course, but I'm done on my third try.

Comments about Ernie Ball 1/4" Stereo Acoustic Endpin Jack:

Very solid jack. Great replacement for the one that's always been a bit flakey in my Rogue acoustic.
Stereo design lets you use to route multiple pickups to multiple inputs, run a balanced line or to switch power on active electronics.
Also works just fine for an unbalanced standard guitar cord application like the way I'm using it.
Other reviewers have expressed frustration in no circuit diagram. I checked the EB website, and they're right, there's no technical info.
Shouldn't be a problem if you have a bit of electrical background. Just plug in a known good cord and buzz out continuity between the pins on the jack and the parts of the other end of the plug. Easy to do using an ultra-cheap multi-meter available at almost any hardware, handyman or home store. If that's not your thing, you'll have to take it in to a guitar tech.
I've included a pic showing the hookup from the connector end. If you're using a standard unbalanced guitar cord, just leave the Ring connection open or tie it to the Barrel contact. Same thing goes for the extra Barrel contact, since you usually attach the shield ground to the large one on the bottom.

        Real item is not the pictured item. This is the only reason I bought it; I though it would be an improvement over the original jack. Turns out they are the same.

        Very Good - but NOT as depicted in Musician's Friend photo

        • Functional
        • Good Quality
        • Great value for money

        Cons

        • Could be hard to install without experience
        • Not as shown in photo

        Best Uses

          Comments about Ernie Ball 1/4" Stereo Acoustic Endpin Jack:

          I bought two and am glad to have them. However, the endpin jack shown in the photo would be nicer because it has a slotted end which would help hold the jack in place when installing. Also, the flattened area on the side of the strap button would make for an easier and more secure tightening down of the unit since you could hold that piece in place with a wrench while tightening. Finally, the rounded end of the strap button jack would be a very nice touch and I was looking forward to that feature.

          The endpin jacks I received will work fine but lack these "elegant" design features. I would gladly pay more for the endpin jack with the rounded strap button end design and the slotted areas that help make installation easier! But for the price, the endpin jacks I received are still a great deal.

          Another reviewer complained about this being a stereo jack, but the fact is that it can also be wired as a mono jack (which IS stated in the description for the product). One must understand the wiring and connections required for mono or stereo use. Instructions would indeed help, but the information is available online if one takes the time to search for it.

          The other option is to have an experienced repairman do the work so you'll have more confidence that it will be done correctly.
