If you don't want to put transformers or IC's in between guitar and amps because you think they'll degrade the tone, let me assure you, that's not necessarily true.
I used to be absolutely militant about not having any effects between my guitar and amp. When I started using a 2-amp rig, I used that Morley box for switching and used one of those adapters to lift the ground on one of the amps' power cords, just like you're doing.
But then I got a chance to try someone's Voodoo Labs Amp Switcher, and found that it is extremely transparent. I really can't hear any adverse effect on the guitar's tone at all when I use that thing. If anything, it probably prevents tone loss because of its low-impedance outputs. So I recommend highly that you try one of those, or build the hum-free A/B/Y box described on Geofex.
