well I have/had used my Spyders and now Tears for John for a long time but I never had interest in this tiny stereo switch.
How is this thing wired? Does it seperate the pickups while using a stereo cord?
As said, I have never used this before and I really would like to know how this is wired.
Many thanks for a slight advise

This is exactly how it works. Basically, it will send the signal from the neck pickup to one amp/cabinet, and the other to another amp/cabinet. I have, in the past, used a stereo set up with my Rickenbackers, and it gives you some interesting possibilities as you can better control the tone and cabinets you use for each pickup.
In real terms, this means you can have just your neck pickup go to, say, an Ampeg SVT and a 2X15" cabinet, while your bridge pickup can go to a different amp with a 4X10" speaker cabinet. What I've found is that you can really separate the "highs" (bridge pickup) and lows (neck pickup), and get a great mix between the two. Of course, if you use one or the other, but not both pickups at the same time, you'll defeat the purpose of a stereo set up quite a bit. You can always use the pan pot, however, to roll in more or less bridge/neck pickup as needed.
Hope this helps,

many thanks for your explanation.
I was thinking in using this to get a beter "divided" JE sound while not doing a real bi-amping. Currently I use a Boss ME-50B, the high band drive here, which gives the highs more distortion than the lows but I notice that I loose bottom with this.
I donīt know if this would work running the bass stereo and having the bridge pu sent to one amp with a distorted signal while the bass pu sent to another one staying relative clean.
I need to check it. I donīt know if I might loose too much of the piano sound while doing this. But it sounds interesting.
BTW are the Series electronics also stereo?

Can you show us pictures of your 36 year vacation on Mars?
Series are stereo
I split my overdrive sound in the Art Nightbass, distorted and clean. Works great, my signal is mixed together when it leaves the Nightbass, so both channels on the Strategy get the same sound. Once I've added a second amp, I will split my signal to: Complete dry (trough a Mesa Bass 400) and stereo Effects (through the Strategy)

Yes the Series electronics are stereo. As a matter of fact Stanley Clarke runs his in sterro. The neck pickup gets sent to and F1X to 2 - 18" speakers and the neck gets sent to another F1X, 2 - 4 X 10" and either a Marshall, 2 X 12" or a Fender Twin. The Marshal/Fender Twin is to add a little grit to the sound.
