Tinker with instrument (6)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

fiddle

Here is my best explanation:

This clue is a double definition.

'tinker' is the first definition.

(thesaurus)

'instrument' is the second definition.

(fiddle is a kind of instrument)

'with' is the link.

This clue was last seen in The Telegraph

(Other definitions for fiddle that I've seen before include "Violin; falsify (figures)", "Sham", "Deception", "One's played", "Get by cheating, or handle aimlessly", "something stringy?", "Violin - racket", "Cheat on (e.g. expenses)", "Trivial things" and "Fraud; instrument".)
