It has a jack on the side not the front has anyone put 2 jacks on the side are there advantages disadvantages to either.
You could also consider mounting the 2nd jack right on the rear cover plate of the control cavity (if that's what it has). Cover plates are usually easier/cheaper to replace than repairing holes in the instrument itself, plus not visible from the front. Just take care that you mount the jack so that, when the cover is in place, it's clear of all the pots and switches...not to mention the preamp and battery! Been working out fine for my Schecter.
TS, i was just going to say exactly the same thing, albeit for trial purposes, but one could also do it for a permanent installation also. for trial purposes it does't have to be the actual control plate, one could cut something out of an old garbage can or sheet of thin wood for temporary purposes. once you try out it's usefulness, you can then proceed with any permanent installtion if wanted.
