I was recently brought an Ibanez acoustic that has a soundhole pickup wired to an endpin jack. The customer wants the endpin jack removed along with the pickup wiring so he can sell the guitar and keep the pickup and endpin jack for another of his guitars.
The endpin jack is not coming out. It is really in there. I removed the interior nut no problem but the jack won't come out of the tail block.
Thinking it might thread out I got it to turn - it's really hard to turn - but it won't come out. I thought maybe of using a hole saw that is barely bigger than the jack (it's a pretty cheap plywood acoustic) and getting it out that way, but that seems kind of drastic. Any ideas?
