You might try the old dual 1M pot after the p/i trick.  
I put a couple of these in Plexi Marshals recently (no I didn't drill any holes) for the guitarists in a local band. They like them and say it retains the general character of the amp but allows them to turn the level down on stage. I used .047uF caps on both sides of the pot. (oops, I did drill four tiny holes in the terminal board to install flea-clip terminals for the extra two caps). On a Fender you could probably add a terminal strip held down by the eyelet board mount screw.
