    I might pick up a board that has the holes done but not the neutrik connections.

    Anyone have instructions on how to do this?

    neutrik jacks by jcweatherly, on Flickr

    I can tell you that a Neutrik needs a 15/16" whole. I placed my frist whole at where the height of the board was 3". That way I knew I could place the center of the jack at 1.5". If you have a tolex covered board I suggest cutting away the tolex prior to drilling to avoid metal shards from getting trapped in between the metal and tolex. Hope that helps!

    I would also suggest mounting closer to the bottom than the top. As you move toward the thinner part of the board (toward your feet) you lose room at the top and mounting gets to close to the hard top.

    If you are going to use the Neutrik locking jacks rather than the Redco, it will have 3 leads for stereo application. Just solder to the tip and the sleeve and you will be set. Like soldering patch cables, easy enough to do.
