EA20SDL 1/4 phono jack
« on: December 29, 2010, 07:40:22 PM »
Having connection problems with the 1/4 phone jack. I need to replace the jack. Any suggestions on where I can find one and if it is hard to replace? I can solder and have worked in electronics. Somebody said the jack is molded into the module and cannot be replaced without replacing the whole pickup module.

deno52, the space is very tight. I had to take mine to a luthier when it loosened up. If you do it yourself, there is a special wrench that can be bought at, stewmac.com.(?) Good luck with your guitar.

The jack seems to be mounted to the guitar body fine, but the connection is faulty between the jack (female) and a common 1/4 male jack. It looks like there are 3 phillips screws that hold the jack to the guitar body but I want to be cautious about trying to remove the socket and not damage something inside of the guitar?????

Are you referring to the XLR connector? If you are trying to use the XLR, plug in your XLR cable, then insert a 1/4 plug into the 1/4 jack. The guitar is designed so the 1/4 plug makes contact inside to turn on power. You can just use a dummy 1/4 plug. If you need to replace the 1/4 jack, you will need a 1/4 jack with 3 connections, and wire it like the one in the guitar.
