I recently purchased a LR Baggs M80 Soundhole/Magnetic pickup and I can't wait to try it out on my acoustic guitar.

However, I'm unable to use the supplied pre-wired strapjack assembly, as it doesn't fit snugly into the presently larger diameter (>1/2") end pin jack hole on my acoustic guitar.

I've decided to fabricate my own wiring harness, strapjack assembly using an alternative (larger sized) acoustic end pin jack which should fit on my acoustic guitar.
e.g.
EP-4605-010 Chrome Acoustic End Pin Jack (http://www.allparts.com/EP-4605-010-Chrome-Acoustic-End-Pin-Jack_p_1448.html)
EP-4600-001 Switchcraft Acoustic End Pin Jack (http://www.allparts.com/EP-4600-001-Switchcraft-Acoustic-End-Pin-Jack_p_1445.html)

Please could someone post the wiring details for the supplied pre-wired strapjack assembly (1/4" TS/TRS? jack and 3.5mm TRS plug)?

Cheers!

The 3.5mm TRS jack plugs into the pickup with the tip=red=signal, the ring=white=switch, and the sleeve=bare=ground. The 1/4” jack is TRS as well.

thanks for posting this. Who knew that a year later someone else (me) would need this info {:^D
