Possibly Modded Rhodes?
« on: October 11, 2018, 02:56:08 AM »
Hey guys! New owner of a Rhodes.

I picked up a '78 Rhodes 73, and based on my research, they came stock with only one output jack, however the one I got has two. I have seen some with an effects loop, however. I don't think that's the case. It seems as the second output bypasses the bass boost and volume pots. I'm not sure if anyone else's has something like this, or if it mightve been some kind of mod. I'm interested in what it would be and what the reason behind the second jack would be. Both Jack's work fine, which makes me wonder...

Yes, pictures--from the back of the name rail, to show the wiring of the jacks, and also at the rear left of the piano, where the cable from the name rail plugs into the harp.  Without them no one can help you.
