    what does it mean that the 4003 is 'wired for stereo?'

    thanks,

    You can run the signal out of the neck and bridge pickups individually using a special cable. Most Rics have two jacks - a two pole "normal" mono jack and a three pole stereo jack. I *think* you use only the stereo jack in stereo mode.

    i'm sure it's the same as my old 4001...two jacks, one mono (most likely what we all use), and one stereo (may be labelled "ric-o-sound" on the jackplate), where the neck and bridge p/u can go to different amps (if you consider that stereo). i believe chris squire used to run his pickups through different amps, which is one reason why his treble cut through so well while maintaining a solid low end. similar idea but quite different from "bi-amping".
