The Vintage Jack is made by Tapastring and lets you enjoy the benefits of having a pickup installed in your instrument without having to worry about drilling out the endpin hole to the 1/2" (12mm) that a full size endpin jack requires.
The Vintage Jack replaces your existing tapered endpin to make your instrument pickup ready. Tapastring has incorporated a Switchcraft 1/8" female output jack into a precision machined end pin. Now you can install pickups in your instrument without having to drill out the end pin hole. Some instruments may require minor fitting work, but this can usually be done with a piece of rolled-up sand paper.
A Vintage Jack is available to fit most guitars equipped with standard taper fit end pins. The Vintage Jack is securely retained by the taper fit of the opposing parts without any adhesives.
Please note: A small 1/8" connector will not have the same reliability rating than our standard 1/4" endpin jack. This is because of the nature and size of the 1/8" connectors. Tapastring uses the best connector available on the market today but due the smaller parts inside a female 1/8" jack it will not provide you an equal trouble free live span like a 1/4" connector does. Even though the vintage jack is setup stereo, we officially offer the vintage jack for passive Pure pickups only. For dual source systems and active battery powered systems we strongly recommend using the standard 1/4" jack.
For guitars only. We do not supply vintage jacks for mandolins.
