    what does it mean for a bass to be "wired for stereo"?

    Where did you read this? I think it could mean a few things, but seeing where it's coming from might help figure out what it actually means. :)

    In regards to a Rickenbacker, each pickup is wired to go to a separate amp (2).

    The Rick-O-Sound (stereo) thing can be kind of interesting. When you go out through the stereo jack and then mix the pickups together in your mixer (or whatever), it has a nice full, rich sound as opposed to the scooped-mid tone you typically get on basses with both pickups on full (no frequency cancellations going on.) And panning the pickups hard left and right achieves a kind of "wide" full sound, almost chorus-like but not wet and electronic sounding.
