Moog MG-1 Pitch Mod

I'm an electronics novice so I was wondering if somebody would be able to help me figure out how to pull off this modification I have an idea for.

What I want to do is install a poteniometer that could tune the entire range of the oscillators. That way I can tune higher and lower than the Mg-1 is capable of out of the box.

Thanks in advance.

I remember a far simpler mod working on the Moog Prodigy, not sure if it's the same. Anyway, there was a pin in the pitch wheel that kept the wheel from spinning too far that can be removed. This allowed it be be tuned a full octave lower, probably could have worked for higher too, I forgot by now. This really helped the Prodigy ALOT in my opinion, it was getting near Minimoog territory I thought. Maybe if you wanted to keep with your original idea then you could maybe fit another pot in line with the pitch wheel?
Anyway, good luck!
