Question: How does the 'Ric-o-sound' stereo option work?
The Ric-o-Sound is a second output jack that splits the guitar signal into stereo, one signal for each pickup, and sends each of these two a different output. To use this, you need to connect a stereo Y-lead and of course have two amplifiers. Simply connect your Y-cable to the Ric-o-sound output and from there into two amplifiers: there is no special switching required, just make sure you have both pickups selected!
