Semi-acoustic, how do I replace the pickup jack?

The only way in is through the 'F' holes. no secret door, i would loosen the nut off on the topside. Pull the jack out by the wiring, repair/replace the jack socket, get some wire coat hanger, blu-tac the jack socket to the end of the hanger, bend hanger and insert into F hole, push up the jack from inside the 335, secure with the nut.

Im sure you will spend hours of fun with the blu-tac and the new socket, but it will be wort it in the end.

I attached a link to a video demonstration from Mojo Musical Supply that might give you some useful ideas. Here they're replacing the entire controls circuit in a 335 workin through the f-hole. They use string tied to the threads of the the components and then fish out the strings to get the components in place. The same technique would work for all kinds of hard to reach installations.
