    Does anyone know how to remove the input jack on an Ibanez SR 700? I don't want to just go off and possibly damage it. Is there a special tool that I don't know about? It fits extremely tight in the body, and the outside portion seems to have a threaded fitting.

    It's an output jack.

    And sorry no. I don't know how to help.

    Looks like it’s glued in place, not threaded.
    Then the wires soldered on.
    I’m guessing but unsolder it and gently work it loose from the cavity out.

    That's weird...There should be a nut in on the barrel jack to prevent it from being pulled out, If it's glued on, that's terrible as it makes it difficult to replace it. I recently replaced a couple of barrel jacks in two of my basses, what I did was I didn't solder them on but secured them by just wrapping the wires securely on the post. Reason for this is that it makes it easier to replace in the future, barrel jacks are the worst as you can't bend the contacts if they get too loose. I would have replaced them with your standard switchcraft jack but the output jack hole is too deep.

    Out there!
    Is your plan to replace it with an output jack?

    Once you take off the threaded collar on the outside you may find that you can unscrew the barrel from the body..... unless they used too much (if any) glue in there. They may have simply threaded it into the body.

    Looks like you just unsolder the leads (pic #1), then use something like needle nose pliers to turn the grip of the inner barrel anti-clockwise, and extract it from the front (pic #2).

    The outer barrel is permanently glued in place, and doesn't need to be removed.

    And yes, it's an output (the musician is the input).

    i have a sr600.
    the output jack is inserted from the outside of the body to the inside of the control cavity.
    to remove the output jack unsolder the lead wires (take a picture of the lead wires and output jack first so you know how they go back on). unscrew the locking nut inside of the control cavity. slide that and the washer off. push the output jack out of the body from inside of the control cavity.
    there is NO glue holding it in. it just might be a snug fit.

    Ok, so the jack does just thread into the body. There is a tool called a Jacktight that I currently can not get a hold of, but looks like it would help a lot. And for those out there who are word nazis, I asked for some practical help, not a lesson on terminology. If you can’t help, please don’t respond to people.
