A week or so ago I had posted about installing a 4-pin mini-xlr in mine. I got around to doing it yesterday. I wound up putting it in the position of the stock jack, but I may relocate this to the bottom. So far, the plug sticking out the side hasn't bothered me at all.
I did not take any pics while I was doing the work, but drilled the stock jack location out to 7/16" (0.434") with a unibit. This took out most of the stock jack support plastic. I then took out the rest of it from the inside with a dremel. The stock wiring appears to be not too bad, and I did not have any problems soldering it to the jack. Stock jack appeared to be a Switchcraft (or knock-off) mini jack.
Jack and plug I used were from Redco, and appear to be Switchcraft. The nut for the jack fit fine after removing the stock jack support material, so no glue needed, and jack is nice and tight.
