I also believe it was done afterwards.
By the way... Which number has yours ?
Mine is #189 from '91.

I've always wondered about doing something like that. All you really need is a switch that can interrupt a bridge for the two channels, I think? Great idea to use a push-pull pot.

Not exactly. Interrupting the jumper wire between the two volume pots will kill your neck pickup signal. I use an SPDT push-pull pot that reroutes the jumper wire signal from going to the extra prong on the stereo jack to the output lug on the bridge volume in default mode. The function can be reversed so that the stereo mode is the in/default mode as well.
