Yes, you could take the Mag that would normally go to the blend pot directly to a stereo jack and then put a piezo volume in place of the mag/blend and run it to the piezo side of the stereo jack. That would get you Mag out (tip), Piezo out (ring) with separate volume controls for the Mag and Piezo. This is probably what the factory meant by it "being on all the time". The piezo out would be on all the time. You could control that by turning down the volume on it when not wanted, or using a foot switch, or let it be controlled at the board (not sure I would trust the board, but would trust my foot on a switch).

Yep. I spoke to Terry about this, and essentially they can't send the piezo signals to the parker pots and the 13-pin simultaneously, so you get the piezo out the 13-pin with their method.

After a bit of research, I found that a lot of players rate the gk3 over the rmc/graphtech approach - especially for the Roland kit (eg VG99), so I've decided to go that route.
