    I'm wondering what mod this is? I drew an arrow pointing to it.
    I see there is a Cross Line master volume connected to volume II. That's pretty obvious.

    Is that purple jumper wire some sort of one wire mod? I can't quite see where the purple wire is soldered.

    Anyone know or have any ideas as to what it might be?

    Thanks! D Meniketti 74.jpg

    Strange. A wild guess but it seems as if the pink wires running from the PI coupling caps to the volume II is a PPIMV

    Surely it's a modded amp

    That may be a repair not a mod, can't see where it goes

    looks like it’s shorting the 470k mixer resistor to ground?

    As matttornado suggest, i think it's simply shorting the unused normal channel mixer side to ground. They could just have grounded the other end of the brown wire, but without a better pic?....
